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.

Featured Route For West Face

Hagakure 5.13 8a 29 X- 30 E7 6c  California : Redwood Coast : ... : West Face
Killer technical climbing on immaculate stone. The first crux comes right off the bat, pulling through smalls crimps and scoops to a good undercling. The difficulties ease off slightly for a few bolts, with the second crux coming at about mid-height on poor gastons and sidepulls with terrible feet. Finish up the steeper headwall, with a final power crux moving past a small crimp rail. Full on pretty much start to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
