Wanted more climbing after Dog Roof so we climbed ...

Description 

Gets sun in the afternoon. Lots of trees, so it stays kind of shady. A good option if it's a little cold. The rock is a little mungy, but I think this has to do with the fact that not that many people venture up here. Also, it's right next to the road, so if car noises bother you, maybe not a good choice.

Getting There 

Head up towards the Wawona Tunnel. Go through the tunnel. Park on the right side of the road immediately after exiting the tunnel. Walk back towards the cliff.

This is a short but super high quality roof crack. The crux is twenty feet of super overhanging ring locks. If it where longer is would be a super classic but even still it's very enjoyable. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

The noise from the road can get into the way of communicating with your partner if you are on any of the pitches nearest to the tunnel. Otherwise, the car noise didn't bother me too much. Unfortunately, you can hear vehicles all over the Valley.

This crag is even closer to its parking area than Swan Slab, super convenient and never crowded. Basically it's got a few good moderate climbs (5.9-10a) and a few good harder climbs (11c-12b).
