Description 

A crag with a corner, dividing it into to a sunny section and a shady section at most times of day. Shorter than the main spires, but on par with other auxiliary walls here height-wise.


Getting There 

From the normal trailhead, hike uphill to the Lizard Head, then follow use trails to the left or right of that formation to the next obvious climbing wall above.

If walking from Wrights Lake Road, take the right-hand road that forks steeply uphill before reaching the normal trailhead. This direct shortcut takes you to the Lizard Head, then you'll pass that to reach the Goblet Wall.

A 5.7 or 5.8 start on a fist crack, where you'll place your first pro on the right - place it beside the first block of the pillar; the second and third are fully detached from the bedrock (causing the involuntary pucker reflex when your hand first goes UNDER one). Make easier moves clipping two bolts to the right (in lieu of trad pro on those suspect blocks) to reach the gully. Avoid much loose stuff here. Now follow the left arete past another bolt or two, and the move from the final...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
