Industrial Bliss (5.10a)
Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This newest additon to the Quarry greatly expands the moderate route offerings with many routes 5.10 and under. Routes here tend to be vertical to slightly overhanging in nature, fairly short and to the point with many featuring "interesting" holds.

Due to it's south-facing location and shelter from the wind this is the warmest spot in the Quarry - perfect for those cold winter days.


Getting There 

Just left of the Agony Arch Area on the south face of the Quarry.

Climb a dirty slab up to the base of the roof, reach up and out to a good pocket in the roof and then power over with no feet until able to get established over the lip. Finish up blocky ledges to reach the anchors. Bees are active on the lower portion of this climb when it's warm out so be warned!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
