A tougher area just up the hill from Indian rock. Almost all Bouldering, though some of the routes are highball enough that a top rope can be helpful.
The area is usually in the shade, helped by some large trees that hide most of the rock from Indian Rock Ave.
Decent is a simple walk off the back of the rock.
If you're up to it, Nat's Taverse (V8) is a must do.
From the main rock, head up hill on Indian Rock Ave. The rock is about a block up on the right side. Approach time: 2 minutes from the main rock, 10 seconds if you park on the street by Mortar rock.

The obvious line starting from the corner as you come up the stairs...pulling the corner is the first crux...(the top rail is off)...then the bulge right after the tree is the next crux...it ends on the ramp and is about 30 feet long.....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
