Tucked right behind 6-toe wall is a narrow gully with two imposing walls of granite. There are a dozen or so exciting single pitch mixed routes ranging from 5.10a to 5.12d.

Getting There 

If facing 6-toe wall, skirt the edge of the rock formation to the right til you see the obvious gully.

Breaking The Law 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  California : Northeast California : ... : The Grotto
Fantastic route! The first thing you'll probably notice is: 90 feet, three bolts and two slung horns. If you follow the correct sequences, it doesn't feel run out. Solid, incut edges most of the way up the climb and fun sequences....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
