Dave at the top of the corner on Tailspin (5.10a),...

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


A short section of slab leads into a right-facing corner system with jamming/liebacking to gain a ledge above the corner. Cut slightly left to join The Plague at it's 5th bolt and finish up that route via a groove with a crack.

This route is currently a little rough around the edges but more traffic will help to clean this up.


Left side of the Slide Zone Area at a section of slabby rock. This is currently the 8th bolted route from the left (or 4th route from the right).


7 bolts, ring anchors (shared with Burnout, The Plague)

Fun balancy route on bad rock. Grade is a little stiff by Quarry standards. A few holds that are vaguely like finger locks, but no real jamming.

One of my few bombs on MP. Seriously, only do this route if you really love climbing through bird shit, and lots of it. 5.nothing climbing leads to 2 moves of funky 5.10, where more 5.nothing climbing through the aforementioned shit gets you to oddly placed anchors. Good times?
