Description 

This is a complex formation directly west of Intersection Rock. Much of it is broken rock, but there is a smoother section near its north end, and most of the listed routes are on this wall.

Getting There 

Walk west across the road from Intersection Rock. You can also easily access it from the road leading to Turtle Rock. It's just north of the road, about 200 yards from the main park road.

The obvious squeeze chimney starting with a couple of face moves and handcrack, pulling into the bottom of the chimney (a little awkward), then straightforward easy knee and foot chimney, ending with a short bit of crack/face (crux) pulling out of the top of the chimney section. Tops out on a nice big ledge. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
