Description 

This area has routes on both the west and east walls. If you want to do hard routes this is your area. Almost all the routes on the West side are 5.11 or harder! This is the area that was hit the hardest by the mudslide but a few climbers have come in and leveled out the belay stances and re bolted a few routes so that you aren't clipping bolts 3 feet off the deck.


Getting There 

From the middle tier scramble up the east wall along the base there is a very faint climbers trail. It is a 4th class scramble. Look out for the stinging nettle.

Delusions 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  CA : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : Upper Tier
Easy climbing on the left face of the dihedral moves right across a triangular block down low. There's a nice ledge for a good rest, use it as there aren't many more opportunities. The climbing turns thin and reachy as you move back left into a seam where you'll find side pulls, pinches, stemming and interesting moves. Keep your cool and finish strong as you pull over the final lip....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
