Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

IMO, not close to the five star Marty considers it. It gets some points for length, but some of the rock is pretty poor (though it will probably clean up w/ traffic), the line is a little vague at one point and the hard part is relatively run of the mill and brief (though rope drag may make it seem longer.) 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 California
