BETA PHOTO: North Face, Deep Creek Narrows


This wall, one of the taller at Deep Creek Narrows, is right at the creek. You will have to traverse in to the start of some routes on 5th class rock to avoid wading, especially in the spring.

Shady in the afternoon, this is a good choice for summer climbing when the valley below is scorching hot.

Getting There 

As soon as you can see the crags below, start heading toward the left. You'll stay above the stream that enters from the left, and follow one of numerous steep trails that lead down to Deep Creek and the base of this crag.

Skirt the "main" formation of the area, keeping the highest rock right on your right side (you'll be downclimbing it, pretty much) and you'll find the most common route; a third-class scramble down a gully that dumps you out pretty much right at the base of the North Face. If you don't see it going down, you'll spot it on the way out.

Overhang Crack 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  California : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : North Face
Start in an alcove below a roof that leads to an obvious crack on nearly vertical rock. Pulling the roof is the first crux, and may take some problem solving for a climber leading at their limit. There's a second crux of sorts higher up where the wall steepens where the crack is hard to jam.Scramble up boulders from the belay then to the right and back down the gully to your gear....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
