Cool Beans you guys.
I went up there pre fire and there was a 30 yard barrier of tall, thick manzanita along the entire base of the crag. I assume most of that is burned away???
Did you guys look at the splitter crack on the front of the jutting buttress a 100 or so yards left of the main face???
Keep up the good work.

The approach is WAY easier in that respect, still pretty vegetated with oak in areas along the base. I'm guessing you're referring to the most obvious crack on the far left end as you first see the south face. We were figuring that had probably been done. Looked a little junky but probably worth doing, as well as a face/crack just to the right. There are actually several other lines of interest, some a bit vegetated, all along that face. There's a really sweet, left diagonalling series of mini-roofs on an inset section of wall about a 100' to the right of the above crack, and a continuous crack to the right of that. Some harder stuff along there too, working out some big roofs! I'll toss a pic on that shows some of that.
It was too bloody hot to even consider that stuff when we were out there and now I'm playing in Mendoza, so someone else can take over.

This is a neat spot and definitely worth the trip in my opinion. We hiked up there in just over an hour and it was really not a bad approach. I liked the old-school backcountry trad style. Thanks Jeff!
