Description 

This area is the upper wall that faces the standard Big Rock descent. There are five short routes here, four bolted and one top-rope. The rock is of course the same as on the main wall of Big Rock, but the routes here are quite steep by comparison. Therefore, these routes focus on balance and fine edging, not the smearing that defines most of the routes on the main wall. These routes are seldom done and offer a nice escape if the main wall is crowded.

Getting There 

To access the Sundeck area, either hike up the descent trail on the north (left) side of the slab, climb one of the routes between English Hanging Gardens and Northwest Passage, or climb one of the long routes to the top of Big Rock, taking the standard descent to the low-angle slab in front of this upper wall.

This is the bolt line furthest to the right. It has two very nice cruxes. The first is a power balance move right off the deck. This is a sweet move that can be approached from a couple different angles, depending on your height. It is protected by the first bolt which is clipped before starting up. A mix of good edges and delicate smears takes one past the second bolt to the upper crux, protected by the third and final bolt. Again, height and reach determine the best line and this one is ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
