This area possesses the excellent Agony Arch as well as some good slab routes and it's mostly comprised of shorter routes. It is south facing which means that it has sun all day long and also tends to be away from the breezes which is nice sometimes and other times it makes the area unbearable.

Getting There 

Walk south following the main formation and go around the corner. This area is facing the 60 Freeway and just right of the The Fun Factory.

Climbing Season

For the Riverside Quarry area.

One of the finest crack lines at the Riverside Quarry, this is located on the slightly overhung face around and left from Hump or Dump.Climb the vertical thin/hand crack as it arches up and left and gets slowly wider and steeper, the crux towards the end as you either jam wide fists near the lip or struggle to get smaller, better jams deeper inside the crack which flares; handrailing the lip is another option if you have the juice.A local classic that would see much more traffic if in...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
