Southwest of Pinched Loaf and 15 minutes or less from the road is this must-visit boulder which is home of the classic highball Slashface (V3 R) and a couple more fun problems. There is a decent amount of bouldering in the immediate vicinity as well which only adds to the appeal of this spot.

Getting There 

Drive 3.6 miles down the Geology Tour Road and park in the obvious turnout (watch for soft sand). Heading west along a trail for 10-15 minutes reaches the boulder.

The problem tops out at around 25 ft. with an easy, yet committing mantel. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
