Description 

This is the small South-side of the rock. In past guide books these routes were just numbered. In The Northern California Road Trip Guide, they have names. The only route listed in that guide is "The Arete" 5.10a, which is the arete where The South Face turns to the East Face. I don't know the new names of these routes, so I will use the old numbers. If anyone knows the new names, please post up and I will edit. Five routes and variations exist here ranging from 5.6 to 5.11a.


Getting There
