Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


A direct wide crack left of Unearthly Delights.
This has some good OW practice. There are quite a few face holds and smaller cam placements so it's not all wide drudgery. But if you are not used to OW you will want a #4 for the lower wide part, and a #5 for the upper part. It is a good place to practice fist to hand stack or the butterfly hand stack.


Middle of the wall, Pipe Dream is the route with tree in the crack that starts left of this. Monkey has same start as this, veers left. Unearthly is to the right.


Mostly hand size cams and larger, but there are a few smaller cracks for nuts and smaller cams.
Bolted belay.
