Deliverance Rock is currently home to two climbs, a 5.11b and a 5.12a, though there is potential for several other tougher routes. Being part of Pine Canyon means that this is indeed a very annoying area to get into. Deliverance rock will add to that annoyance, as there is no good trail established to access the rock from the other climbs. This rock faces north, and cannot be seen from any other direction, so without investigation or the first approach, you would have a hard time knowing that it's there. The good news about Deliverance rock is that the climbing faces north, and is also partially shaded, so this will offer some relief from the hot sun. It is also slightly overhanging, which is a difference from most of the other established routes in the area. Also, the rock here is as solid as in any of the boyscout rocks, which cannot be said about any of the other rocks in the Pine Canyon area.

The right bolted climb on Deliverence rock, Squeal Like a Pig ascends a dihdral with very few holds and awkward stemming. Start at the finger pocket just above your head (unless you freakishly tall), and enjoy it, because its the best hold you'll have for about 35 feet. So to make up for this dearth of good holds, you'll have to stem your heart out.The bolt spacing and location on this route is safe but still has a very spicy feel, and there are definitely areas where you would not want to take...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
