C'est moi only minutes after descending; note Wigg...
A west facing 'tweener area -- it abuts both the right side of the Dilithium Crystal and the left side of the Eldorado Roof -- offering a handful of off-vertical face climbs. This area was newly designated in the 10th edition of Lewis' guide; it used to be called Eldorado Roof - Far Left. The signature climb here is the long face route, Probation Violation.
The shortest approach is probably walking left from the Eldorado roof (approx 30 seconds) after descending the Central Gully and walking up the road. Alternatively, it is very close to the Dilithium Crystal if you happen to be there.
Climbing Season For the Inner Gorge area.

The slab ending adds some quality.Between the 6th and 7th bolt careful routefinding may be required.Two 100' raps to descend....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
