This is another stacked crag in the Central Gorge that is a good cold weather destination (obviously, it gets sun). It is home to the popular Sendero Luminoso, as well as an assortment of other high quality climbs.

Getting There 

Located just north of the Great Wall of China. Approach from the standard Central Gorge descent gully and cross the River.

Static Cling 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Solarium

It starts with steep juggy rock and slowly gets harder until steep technical face pulling past a small roof at the 7th and 8th bolts. Just after the crux step left then continue up past easier but great climbing. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
