The cube sitting atop a small headwall
A big detached cubic block, up and right of the P Wall and Grotto, up and left of shadow. Some faces are vertical, some radically overhanging. 4 Toprope bolts on top for various routes, but not all have hangers. Bring a wrench, and maybe some wires.
Best approach is from the highest anchor on Shadow, or scrambling down from the East Summit Blocks.
If poison oak bothers you even a little, dont waste your time. It's 10 feet tall and thick.

It's pretty clear standing under it that its just going to take a strong campus move off of a small crimp (v6/7), or a huge reach to gain an incut, in which case the rig goes a full number easier at about .11b.We added a belay bolt on the starting slab that's easy to tie into, since the crack underneath was too rotten for gear, and what is cragging without a 5.8 belay stance?...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
