Description 

Right of The Innominate (5.9) the wall steepens and bulges impressively before quickly turning slabby and shorter with routes in the 1-2 pitch range.

Several of Tahquitz Rock's few remaining aid lines are to be found in the steeper area - Left X Crack (A4, 5.9), Right X Crack (A2+, 5.8) and TM's Jewels (A3, 5.8) - while the slabby area further right is home to such routes as Orange Peel (5.6), Baby's Butt (5.6 R), Diddly (5.10a) and Pas de Deux, Original Route (5.10b).


Getting There 

Head right from Lunch Rock and continue uphill as the trail wraps around the rock. See the individual route descriptions for more detailed approach information.

This one pitch face route has a few interesting sections of face climbing. Start at a block which lies against the wall. Climb ten feet to its top and then traverse 15 – 20 feet left to the “Orange Peel” flake. From the top of this flake, clip a pair of bolts and do the crux face moves up and left to much easier ground. Scramble up and left a long ways to where you can set up a belay. Easy scrambling leads to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
