Description 

This warm, south-facing cliff band is home to a few steep, classic crack climbs. These include Phobos (5.9+), Diemos (9+), Blues Riff (5.11b/c) and Goldfinger (12a).

Getting There 

The cliff sits just east of Tenaya Lake and the huge Moutaineer's/Harlequin Dome complex. It is directly across from Pywiak Dome. Parking can be found directly below the dome at a small pulloff, or in the main Tenaya Lake parking lot.

The approach up to the cliff is a grunt. The trail is well-marked however. Allow 45 minutes.
