Slabby cliff developed as a crag for kids and beginners. This convenient cliff is a great low commitment option for some easy leads and has multiple top rope variations. Morning shade, afternoon sun.

Getting There 

From the junction of 395 and the Rovana / Pine Creek Rd. exit drive 9.1 miles west. There is pullout on the south side of the road, 1 minute walk from the cliff.

Pitch 1 - 5.4. Bust an initial boulder problem (crux) off the ground, past 1 bolt, to discontinuous cracks up the super low-angle slab. A slight bulge just before the anchor is slightly harder, but there is always adequate pro.Pitch 2 - 5.6 Climb the bolted face above the anchor to reach a right-facing corner crack on the upper slab. Leave the crack and face climb past a bolt to the anchor.The pitches can be run together with a 70m rope if mindful of rope drag....[more]   Browse More Classics in California

Stopped by here on Memorial Day, 6/29/2017, to let my kids climb on toprope. Is easy stuff for kids and beginners, as described. We drove off leaving my daughter's little skateboard next to the parking pulloff. If a generous person who finds it is willing to box it up, I'll pay to ship it to me.
