Description 

Really the leftmost extension of the Tioga Cliff. Great granite featured unlike other stuff in the area. Great face routes with a good crack or two. Popular with eastside locals.

Getting There 

Follow the directions for the Tioga Cliff. Continue hiking past the steep, sport bolted, chain-drawed project land of the Tioga Cliff to the far left end, walk down a small talus slope with a faint trail to the next cliffband.

Awesome mixed face and crack climbing. Only gets 2 stars in he book but so far it's my favorite route in the area. Take an easy approach on the left or a bolted 10a pitch on the right. You can lead it in a long single pitch if you start on the left and are mindfull of roap drag but I recommend doing it in 2 pitches. Also be mindfull of some loose rock. From the P1 ledge you can lower the 2nd to the ground with a 70 then rap....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
