Description 

A south and west facing boulder hosting two climbs: The Wombat (5.11) faces south and True Grit (10a) faces west. A good place to climb on colder days.

To build a toprope, walk around to the north side of the boulder to the top. Class 1. Depending on where you build the anchor, you may need to extend your slings.

Getting There 

Walk to the Twin Owls area then follow the trail south for several minutes. When you hit the rock, head around to the right between the nasty white thorn and the rock face. At the SW toe of the boulder is where the climbs are.

The crux is at the start. Two or three bouldery moves off of knobs gain a good stance. Continue up the knobs, placing gear in the cracks, until you can move left into the offwidth. If done at the wrong place, this move can feel quite awkward and insecure. Finish up the offwidth which goes at about 5.7 and narrows to a dirty handcrack at the top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
