The Cluster is a couple of small boulders located just behind the Pillars of Pain or the west end of Turtle Rock. Individually, each boulder has one recorded route on it, facing east getting sun most of the day.

Getting There 

To get to The Cluster, sneak your way through the boulders that harbor the small picnic areas at the end of the RHV loop road, as if heading to the west end of Turtle Rock. Veer right and into the open where The Cluster is seen.

This climb involves novel and fun steep face moves, with significant runouts. A scary mantle (crux) near the bottom leads up to the first bolt. It's quite different from a standard JT slab climb, with medium to large holds on steep rock....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
