30 foot wall with 2 main routes up it. Easy to set up a TR, You can use a big hex and some webbing for part of an anchor and some medium cams right by the lip. There is also a stud you can cinch off with a nut.

Getting There 

Walk past the Turlock bolder and then head straight up to it. Or you can wonder up by the butresses and take a trail that traveres over to the right. Or from the back wall, head up and over to the left.

To set up a TR head to the left around the wall and scramble up to the top.

This is kinda like 3 Pigs, but longer. Just follow the pin scars up. You can pinch some of them too. It can be pumppy, but it turns to a slab towards the top. Another problem is there are so many holes so keep bumping up and switch hands until you find the better ones....[more]   Browse More Classics in California

There has been bolts placed on this route, as well as chains. I didn't get on top to look at the top bolts, but the bolts placed for lead don't look like anything I've seen before. Could be fine but use good judgement.

They should never have been placed to begin with. Plenty of other crags in the area to lead climb.
