The lower of 3 tiers at Stonewall Peak. The rightmost tier as viewed from the approach. Hosts the area classic "Frito Bandito". Much of the rock here is crumbly and can cause headache when face climbing as well as serious rope drag due to being J-Tree grainy. Use of slings and back-cleaning gear can help with rope drag issue.
Head up from the hiker's trail or down from the peak. Continue over the railing, in the direction the trail was going before it ended and scramble down from there.

Up friable face climbing past two bolts (crux). Belay at ledge or climb up the hand crack for a nice finish. Watch rope drag across the rough rock. Use slings and it is highly recommended to back-clean the first pieces in the first roof traverse.Walk left from belay (40') to bolted rap anchor. 1...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
