Description 

The largest unbroken formation in the Alabama Hills. Home to long, clean face routes on outstanding rock.

Getting There 

From the Meatloaf Campsite, walk directly toward truffle Tower. From the base of Truffle tower turn right and scramble up a corridor between Truffle Tower and a large boulder. After about 60 feet of scrambling, drop down and right through a cave/corridor. You will emerge from the far end at the base of The Loaf.

Awesome, high angle face climbing on edges. Sustained, exposed, and well-protected...what more could you ask for?There is a slabby crux around the 10th bolt (maybe 5.8). Otherwise the route is sustained 5.7 with a variety of different cruxes....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
