Mainly South facing series of Volcanic Tuff cliffs, although Zigzag Cliff is shaded in the afternoon.

Climbs are short, and generally moderate in difficulty.

Most of the climbs use gear with the occasional bolt.

Either take the right arching crack on the right or the crack into gully on the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
