Ali Baba 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  California : Central Coast : ... : The Camel
Good sport climb on the neck of the Camel. Faces due east, so we were able to do it in the noon shade which was nice.First bolt you clip from the ground, then actually step down and left. Move up on big cobble holds. Good cobbles throughout the climb, with good jugs, crimp edges, pinches and huecos (I'm sure those held awesome cobbles at some point.)...[more]   Browse More Classics in California

Directions for finding The Camel and Teaching Rock:
From the Bear Gulch Parking Lot, start at Moses Spring trailhead. Hike 0.1 mi, turn right onto High Peaks trail, hike 0.3 mi, then left on the Rim Trail. Follow Rim Trail approx 0.2 mi to The Camel. Side trail shoots off to the left (25 yards) for an easy walk up to the top of the camel hump, aka Teaching Rock. You will see Teaching Rock easily from the trail.
