This is a large, cleanly cleaved boulder with excellent dark grey stone that is home to a couple of excellent, albeit short routes. Lesbian Lust (5.9) and the Right Side Arete (5.10a) are the routes to do here and are well worth the 45-60 minute approach. This can be a good place to visit if the weather is cold and windy with it's lower elevation and fairly sheltered location, not unlike the Bond Boulders.
Park at the south parking turnout (see OZ overview for details) and head west in the wash past the turnoffs for Valley Of Voices and Emerald City. About 500 meters past the Poppie Field Boulders you'll encounter a rough section with some boulders, after which the wash levels out and becomes sandy again and opens into a broad, open valley. Turn right (heading north) and aim for some dark boulders lying at the base of a rocky hillside; the boulder is hidden for most of the approach but becomes visible when almost on it.

Boulder up to a high first bolt, clip it and then lieback your way up the sharp arete, with good feet, to shared anchors with Lesbian Lust. The crux comes just past the last bolt and is a little steeper than the rest of the route with more rounded hands and smears for the feet. Excellent rock and engaging moves earn this two stars out of five....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
