Description 

This massive rock, wit hits 400-foot wall, stands at the head of the canyon. The majestic formation is at the end of the worn approach trail, just auphill from Whitetail Rock. This is a great place to climb on a hot day, as all routes lie ont he north face. One either can descend via rappel down POWER TOOLS, or precariously downclimb off the uphill, southeast bshoulder. Extreme care must be taken in the loose scramble down to the top bolts on POWER TOOLS.

Pitch one we climbed the 10b sport (not the 5.9 crack) variation. It was dirty, mossy, traversy, and pretty dang fun. I used single length slings on bolts one and two and didn't get much drag at all. At the anchor atop pitch one I pulled the rope through all of the gear then lowered it back down to Vickie, making it a safer follow. Pitch two head up and right through putting green-like terrain to some (whoooo-hooo) cleaner stone. Pitches 3 and 4 are pretty much clean killer bee sport climbi...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
