This, the first wall you encounter on the approach, is easily identified by the striking corner system of D.D.D. (5.11a) and home to a nice collection of a dozen or so routes from 5.8 to 5.12a. The left side is a bit steeeper while the right is slabby with a nice concentration of routes.

Getting There 

Park at the Lake George parking lot and start hiking on the Crystal Lake Trail. After hiking uphill for about 10 minutes some large water tanks will come into view - leave the main trail and head for these where you'll pick up another trail. Cross over the ridgeline and then contour along the hillside via a good trail that follows some water pipes until you reach a a fork in the trail (stay left) and the crag will quickly come into view. The left side of the Spring Wall is the first rock you'll encounter. The approach takes 15-20 minutes if you hit it right.

Easy but unprotected slab gains the first bolt about 25' up, after which two more bolts of face lead up and left (crux) into the dihedral which requires a deft blend of stemming and face climbing. The climbing eases near the top and concludes with a short section of perfect hands (2.5" piece optional). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
