A great place to get started.

One of the first major areas on the approach, it's pretty popular on hot days as the shade is abundant. Large boulders with a variety of climbing are found here from short steep and powerful, to low-angle traverses and sketchy highballs.

Getting There 

Hike up the trail for 5-10 minutes. When you enter the canyon and the trail flattens out, it dips down a little and the large, dark boulders will be hugging the right side of the trail. The Slow Dance Cave faces the East Rim and cannot be seen from the main trail. Walk between the boulders where you will see the Corner Boulder perched just up-slope from the Slow Dance Cave.

'The Tall Wall' v1

The Tall Wall V1 5 CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Corner Boulder
R/X. The Tall Wall is tall, slightly overhanging and the landing is potentially terrible if you pitch off to the right. The climbing is great though - if solid at the grade have a go and enjoy. Start on the left-facing fin. Work up on good huecos to the heady crux top-out (it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a buddy on the top pointing out holds on your first go..) ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
