There are a handful of bolted routes (5.9 - 5.10a) that lead to the very top of the rock (about 150'). Midway anchors provide a rap station so you only need one rope. There's a mixed climb on the left (5.9+), along with another climb to the very right (5.8). There's also a 5.11 just to the left of the 5.8, but I can't recall if this is bolted or not. If not, you can climb one of the easier bolted routes and set up a TR from the midway anchors.
The Shield of the Titans is the most apparent rock formation in this area. Its also marked by a large black streak running up the middle. There are cairns that mark a well placed trail. Please try to stay on the trail as much as possible as this area recently burned and the vegetation is still recovering.

This crag, while sporting a handfull of bolted routes with convienence midway anchors, can still be a bit spooky. The metamorphic rock creates platelike formations layered on the wall. It is beginning to clean up but every spring freeze/thaw creates a new crop of flakes to exfoliate. The Upper half of the climbs see signifigantly less traffic and have a little bit more junk. Wear a lid.
-ed. It should be noted that most of these routes were probably climbed on gear before the bolts were added.

Climbed there this weekend and got on a route on the very right or east end. Had to climb up a very chossy 15 ft face with one pin to a ledge after the ledge there was a bolt a pin and a pin and bolt next to each other. The first pin was loose, so I removed it. Does anyone know who put the route up and if they would object to rebolting the route?
