Description 

The original climbing area in Clark Cyn. Still worthy.

Getting There 

Follow the obvious drainage up left just past Spud 5 (and before un-recorded #6 with two routes) until a faint trail can be seen traversing the hillside to the right, a ways above any bolted climbs (1-2 minutes). Traverse past a bunch of boulders for about 4 or 5 minutes until a massive overhanging boulder is reached, which has visible anchors up top. The traverses and the anchors face away from the direction you are walking. The description differs slightly from the Mammoth Boudering beta but is how most people seem to go since it's the only noticeable trail.

The low traverse of the boulder, a plumb line--albeit gravity challenged--straight across the boulder never going high or being tempted by all those jugs just a body length above. Brilliant gymnastic climbing on nebulous pockets, which merges with the standard traverse near the end of the main wall and continues around the corner via much easier terrain. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
