Description 

Large wall with long routes and excellent quality rock. Separated from the Dream Tower/Sunset Wall by a large gully. Full sun after 10 AM. Crowded? Hahahaha...

Getting There 

Approach as per the main area, about 2/3 of the way down the formation, past a large gully. There's an undeveloped wall with a severely overhanging, 20' high bulge/roof at the base just before you reach the first Main Tower route.

Featured Route For Main Tower

Bomb Shelter 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  California : Redwood Coast : ... : Main Tower
Corner to overhanging face to slightly less-than-vertical finish on killer rock. Climb a huge detached block to a high first bolt, up a corner, then cut left. The majority of the route follows the path of least resistance up a shallow, overhanging dihedral with mostly huge holds to the left of the bolt line. The crux is probably pulling the small bulge past the 8th bolt, it's a little harder if you head straight up and a little easier if you head right....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
