Description 

This small but worthwhile east-facing crag sits almost directly across the Gorge from the Dilithium Crystal, and while not as popular as some of the better known crags has a handful of routes well worth checking out. Recommended routes here include Melts in your Mouth (5.10c), Escapade (5.11a) and Thumbs Up (5.11c) which all feature great rock and an abrupt change in character at some point on the climb.


Getting There 

Approach via the Central Gorge or Upper Gorge approach as it's about midway between the two. The wall sits almost directly across from the stellar Dilithium Crystal.

Escapade 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ E3 5c  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Fun House
This is the second route from the left and sits just right of the excellent Thumbs Up (5.11c). The route starts higher than the others and requires a bit of a scramble to reach the base. Enjoyable moves up vertical rock on mostly positive holds comprise the lower crux, but brace yourself for the dicey slab moves (5.10+) near the top of the route which can throw you off if your footwork isn't dialed. A stellar route, and the easiest of the Tom Herbert "E" routes, all of which are excellent. T...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
