The crag.

Description 

This sweet little stack of rock is home to a bunch of great climbs in the 5.11-5.12 range. The routes are tightly packed and generally receive afternoon sun.


Getting There 

Approach via the Central Gorge. Either cross the river by the bathroom and then hike under the Eldorado Roof, or follow the trail until directly across from the Crystal, descend steeply to the river and cross there.

Phasers on Stun

Phasers on Stun 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- E6 6b  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : The Dilithium Crystal
Straight up the center of the Dilithium Crystal between Mind Meld and Lt Uhura, lies this beautiful, technical face. The business comes early with several thin, bouldery moves leading to balancey moves leftward to gain the flake. Good rests lead up to a strange bulge and a pumpy finish. Sustained and excellent. Lower end .12c compared to many other Gorge routes of the grade. Can be combined with the finishes of Romulan Roof or Klingon for a greater pump....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
