Description 

West facing and often much sunnier and warmer than the Trinity Aretes. Nice views from its high position and very secluded.

Getting There 

Depending on how you traveresed the hill getting to the rock, you should end up at the west face after scrambling over a couple of boulders at it's base. The first bolted line you come to is Up On Top, Ma (5.9). There is a 5.8 mixed route just to the right of this, Oedipus.

Climbing Season

Featured Route For West Face

Original Sin 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  CA : Redwood Coast : ... : West Face
Mixed route...first half is gear, second half is bolted. Gear section is mellow with big holds but fiddly gear. Bolted section is steep with big moves between big holds. Book calls it .10b, more like 10+/11-. Definitely harder than the ".11a" arete to the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
