A south-facing, 40-foot-high buttres of granite. There is only one route here (and probably won't be others in the future), but it is worth the hike if you are climbing at the grade

Getting There 

Drive up the canyon to the large dirt parking lot where High Drive and Gold Camp Road diverge. Hike up High Drive as little as 10 feet or as far as 200 yards until you find a break in the short, crumbly cliff band that seems resonable enough for you. Once over this, follow the path of least resistence up scree fields and scrub oak. A good 10 to 15 min of hard work will lead you to a very small looking boulder that is not visible from the parking lot or during the hike. But have faith, you will stumble upon it. Error on the side of being too far left as you go up since this will give you the best chance of finding it.

This three bolt route is in your face from the time you clip the first bolt until you get to the anchors. The crux of the route is getting established on the vertical face. While Ian originally graded this 13b, I am not sure that this would clock in at V8.This is a fun, technical, powerful route in a superb, excluded setting.I am not sure how Ian and Stew ever found this little crag, but I am glad they did.
