Lower East Side is a new area southeast of the central pinnacles, developed by Brad Singer and members of the Rim of the World Climbing Club in 2006. It is divided into two main walls, Delancey Rock on the north and Bowery Rock to the south, both of which are west facing. It features eight routes at this time, predominantly 5.10's. The quality of rock is quite good, and reminiscent of other walls at Holcomb, but there is a lot of lichen growing and most of the climbs still need much cleaning. This will occur naturally as more people try these routes.

Getting There 

To find the Lower East Side head east from Lost Orbit Rock cross a seasonal stream and then up a slight hill to the base.

Key holds allow the climber to work up while continuing to stem, to reach the second bolt and a large flake on the left. Tenuous moves gain the wall above, where more straightforward climbing leads to the anchor, shared with Bearish. Rappel t...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
