Eric Odenthal at the crux of Arrogant Bastard. Di...
This is a more recently developed formation, and one of the better finds, with a small but good selection of long, well-protected routes, several of which are among the best of their grades for the area.
Visible from the upper parking area as a non-descript, jumbled-looking wall, which belies the quality climbing it affords. Highlights here include the long and varied Vertical Epic
(5.10a) and the overhanging goodness of Arrogant Bastard
Well worth the short walk not only for the quality climbing, but for the lack of traffic common in the more popular areas of the Pinnacles.
Routes listed from left to right: Supercalibelgolistic
(5.9) Old Guardian
(5.10b) Vertical Epic
(5.10a) Arrogant Bastard
From the upper parking area (near Wilbur's Tombstone
etc.) walk north along the dirt approach road and then cut left along a trail, which starts behind a large dead tree, to reach the base of the wall. The approach takes all of five minutes.
Climbing Season For the Holcomb Valley Pinnacles area.

Interesting face climbing up a vertical face littered with positive holds that goes over several small roofs/overlaps to a finish up a flared corner system. It ends on a spacious ledge with anchors and great view of the surrounding area. Perhaps the best route of it's grade at the Holcomb Valley Pinnacles....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

This wall is a sun trap, it's warm here even in the winter, and in the summer it's baking.
