Great knob climbing on the second pitch. September...
2014 Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>


A super quality cliff with mid-day to sunset sun exposure. Most route require face/knob climbing. This area has a mix or old and new classics.

Getting There 

From the huge parking area across from low profile Dome, walk through the bog in to the woods till you hit a trail. Take this to the east (left) keeping an eye out for trail/cairn on the right after 1/4 mile. Walk this steep trail up hill to the wall.
Descent: walk off SW and check out the top of this really cool dome. Be very careful not to step on any of the plants who make there hard fought homes on the top.

We accessed it by climbing Piss Easy, but other approach options may exist.Also, the supertopo guide notes that Jake Whittaker put it up freesolo (!) and that it was later bolted by a party unaware of the fact it had been climbed. The FA expressly gave permission for the bolts to remain, I'd like to thank him for that generousity, so that mere mortals like myself could enjoy this excellent route.From the large belay ledge atop p2...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
