Description 

Mostly sunny wall that is not nearly as crowded (usually) as the top ropes on the north side of Stoney. This wall has some great exposure looking down at Boulder 1 and the road. It sports two bolted climbs (not leadable - crap bolts or studs). Pink Drips is the left 5.9 that follows the rusted bolt stud line. The 5.10 is around the corner with the mix of bad bolts visible. Cool wall, but somewhat chossy. If it sees more traffic it should keep pretty clean.


Getting There 

Walk past B1 boulder towards the Pile Ups boulders. In between these two formations, cut up the hill slightly right of were you would head up for the Jesus Wall. Easy scrambling lead to the base of the wall.

To get to the top to set up the TR, head further towards the Pile Ups and ascend the hill behind them. Once up fairly high, but below the top, head left across a ledge and well worn grass path. Make the belay off the live trees, crack, or boulder. You'll need some good long extension here to get your top rope far enough out on the wall (10-25') to eliminate terrible friction.

Crux is up high. Follow the bolt studs. If you start directly under the upper studs, it is much harder and you're off-route. Start left and follow the studs up and right. Watch out for loose / fragile holds. Hard 5.9 for Stoney Point IMHO. Watch how you run the rope and don't snag it on the studs near the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

The bolts are old rusty 1/4" drive-ins and are not intended for leading on, the are a vesitage from earlier days. This is a top-rope wall.

Went to climb Pink Drips on May 31, 2009 and it looks like the anchor tree was a casualty of the fire last year. Plan accordingly.

Looks like a great candidate for three beefy glue-ins.

I can contribute $40 to this effort.
