Description 

Ten Minute Cliff is a clean 30 feet tall cliff with very few weaknesses. The most obvious line is the Ten Minute Crack (5.12 fingers) that ascends the middle of the cliff. There are numerous top-anchors and all are easy to reach,

Getting There 

From the pullouts on Bucks' Bar road, take the trail down to Buck's Bar Dome then turn right near the bottom of the south-facing cliff. From here, follow the trail about 100 feet and you will find yourself atop the 10 minute cliff.
