A fine line up the sunny side of the Eastern Summit Block. Start just right of Flakes to Fresno, finding the path of least resistance around an awkward block. Traverse up and left past 2 bolts on reasonably solid rock. Crank through the small, but tricky roof (11a crux), passing a 3rd bolt. Easier face climbing up a vertical seam and 3 more bolts to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
