At the upper left end of the canyon facing east (morning sun/afternoon shade) and just past the Tennis Shoe Block is this nice wall with it's distinctively blocky roofs. Super Roof (5.9) is the big draw here but the other routes here are worth a spin if in the area.

Routes from left to right:

Let's Get Horizontal (5.11b)
Super Roof (5.9)
Comfortably Numb (5.11b/c)

Getting There 

See the Steve Canyon page for detailed approach information about getting to Steve Canyon.

Once inside the canyon head north passing the Tennis Shoe Block and the Super Roof Wall will be the next formation on your left (west). A little bit of easy scrambling up boulders is necessary to reach the base of the wall.

Super Roof is the obvious roof crack 15' left of a prominent off-width roof crack (Comfortably Numb, 5.11). Scramble onto a ledge to begin, and climb the imposing roof which is easier than it looks. Take care not to get your rope stuck as it happens more often than you might think. Descend down easy ledges off to the climber's right.Although short this climb is lots of fun, has great exposure and good rock. The approach is minimal too, but enough to keep the masses away. This is a nice spot to get ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
