Description 

Conveniently located just off the Lost Horse Road this portion of the Freeway Wall houses a collection of over a dozen easy to moderate routes from 5.4 to 5.11a with most being 5.9 and easier.

No standout climbs here but False Smooth as Silk (5.4), Smooth as Silk (5.7), Thigh Master (5.9) and Stop Trundling (5.9) are a notch above the rest.

Getting There 

Access via the Lost Horse Road and park where available near the formation. A minimal approach along boulders leads to the base of the wall. Plan on roughly 5 minutes for the approach.

Climb a fun, awkward start (face, stem) to a thin crack (right hand) below the first bolt. Protect the crack, then step up and clip the first bolt. Try to resist the A0 moves that follow. Get established in the shallow face bowl leading to the second bolt, clip that rig, then up. Fun!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
