Pitching from the Sundeck

Description 

This area is the upper wall that faces the standard Big Rock descent. There are five short routes here, four bolted and one top-rope. The rock is of course the same as on the main wall of Big Rock, but the routes here are quite steep by comparison. Therefore, these routes focus on balance and fine edging, not the smearing that defines most of the routes on the main wall. These routes are seldom done and offer a nice escape if the main wall is crowded.


Getting There 

To access the Sundeck area, either hike up the descent trail on the north (left) side of the slab, climb one of the routes between English Hanging Gardens and Northwest Passage, or climb one of the long routes to the top of Big Rock, taking the standard descent to the low-angle slab in front of this upper wall.

This route is just to the right of the prominent dark streak and about 8 left of Mickey Mantle. There is an old bolt line up the middle of the face to the right; the hangers are long gone. So whether this climb was originally done as a top rope and later bolted, or the name comes from a time after the bolts were stripped, is unknown. The Mayr guide shows this line as following the flaring seams to the left of the bolt line. There are no pro opportunities in the seams. Start at th...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
