This sterling route climbs a steep finger crack for about 15 feet. A couple of good ring locks lead to a typical Woodson top-out crux. Those comfortable at the grade can easily boulder this, otherwise for the rest of us two bolts at the top provide an anchor for this classic problem.
After rounding the corner from the Uncertainty Principle Area, e.g., Pickpocket, continue past a heavily chalked "blasted boulder" to a tight left switchback. Looking up and to the right from this corner is a wide offwidth crack, beneath which, and not seen from the road, is California Night. Follow the trail from the road in, up and right to this gem!
To set up a TR, tunnel under the scrub oak to the right of the crack to gain the top. Another fun warm-up alternative is to go around the left of California Night and on the backside of the boulder and climb a 5.9 grainy/juggy face to set up.
