Description 

This is the main cliff and the first one you arrive to during the descent. Stacked. Many routes have fixed draws; many don't. Some require gear. Long ropes are helpful. Southeast facing; typically goes in the shade around 1 PM midsummer.

Getting There 

Park at a pullout 8.2 miles up 120 from 395. Just east of the green bridge. An old info display entitled "Don't Fence Me In" confirms you're at the right spot. Hop the guard rail and descend via a steep climbers' trail that leads skiers' right (up canyon). 10 minutes to the first climbable route on the first wall (the Tioga Wall), 20-25 minutes to the furthest routes/walls.

A real gem and arguably one of the best routes (and its fully trad!!) at the cliff! One of the better routes of the grade/style in the area! Way better (and more solid) than it looks. Definitely has cleaned up since the first time I was on it maybe 10 years ago!Steep blocks and 5.9 jamming gets you to a funky section with cool moves up and left (Red Alien size in the low flare -- #0 TCU or #00 TCU (better) in the middle of the 10d-ish moves). A 5.10 section with good gear links into ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
