Description 

Nice quiet secluded spot with good views.


Getting There 

Use same approach as Crowley Towers. Take the climber's trail marked with carabiner signpost to the backside of the Flumes. Follow the Westside of the Balconies wall as it contours uphill. When you come around the end of the wall Crowley towers will come into view. Follow a distinct trail until you reach the final ridge where the trail turns left to the towers. At this point turn right (away from the Crowley towers)towards the bump like formations on top of the Balconies.

Dave just past first bolt

The Keller Arete 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  CA : Central Coast : ... : Balconies Bumps
Start a little right of the toe of the arete. Low angle climbing protected with gear 1"-2"in holes leads to first bolt about 20 ft up on a flat shelf like area. From here follow three more bolts to the top. Third bolt (at the crux) is to the right and hard to see. There is a lot of hollow rock and lichen at the crux. Be very selective....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
