The namesake boulder for the area contains what might be the best crack problem in the valley, Deliverance, a long, difficult roof crack. There are a few other forgettable, low quality problems on the boulder.

You will be vaguely near a tree-choked boulder/talus filled gully that appears to run down from Sentinel, and pass through a small more open area/clearing shortly before reaching the boulder.

As it is, start at the obvious hand jam as deep as you could reasonably start, and continue out the thinning crack to a ringlock crux move or two, continuing into bomber fingerlocks and some face holds at the lip, and topout....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
