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.
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.

Either chimney up to the 3rd bolt (standard/original start) or fire off the .11c direct start into the pumpy upper wall. Head slightly left and then back right through a short overhang (the crux) to the highest anchors on the wall. The route that splits off to the right at the 5th bolt is called the "Vulcan Variation" and checks in at .11d, but is not as classic.This route is considered a gorge classic....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
