3 out of 5 stars Fun chimney

This actually a very fun climb, with lots of variations, all pretty easy. You can do it as a chimey, or try a bunch of variations all on the face.

There are 3 pairs of bolts on top. A pair above Bat Crack which can TR Bat Crack, the face climb, or the corner/roof. The 2nd set a few feet towards the chimney/Cleavage can also do the .8/.9 face routes. And then a 3rd set just above the chimney, one of which has a quick/link rap ring to escape from.

4 out of 5 stars Fun stemming

A lot of options, and a great place to practice stemming of all sorts. The anchor is a bit sketchy to set, requiring a free solo up a 5.5 crack or a 5.3 scramble over a small ridgeline, depending where you want to setup. We set up the belayer halfway up the climb, so you lowered down to the ground and then climbed past your belayer to the top, and this worked well - you could hike around to the base, but there's a lot of poison oak there to deal with. The climb itself is a lot of fun, really easy with a lot of ledges to rest. If you have an experienced person with you to set up the anchors, this is a nice place for beginners.

4 out of 5 stars - - -

a lot like split rock, you try to climb one side and end up falling back onto the opposite facing rock.
