Description:

If you go straight up there is a blank section that's at least a 5.8, but if you go either left towards the arete or right towards the chimney at that point, it's no more difficult than 5.6.

4 out of 5 stars valley of broken glass

Easy to find your way down to the belay point, just follow all the broken bottles. Parking is now $8, and bring exact change. There's one bolt on the back side of the top, use it to back up your slings on TR. Fun route, a little dirty, plenty of solitude, even though people are hiking right below you, can't beat it for the views!

4 out of 5 stars Gorgeous view

This route is well worth the effort for the amazing view of SF and the bay. We slung an anchor around the boulders at the top. On the climbers right from the belay point there is a very strenuous path to the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Beautiful view, easy climb

Just TR'd it. Easy anchors by slinging some big boulders up there - bring some decent length slings, or a few cams/nuts. Really amazing view, pretty easy 5.8. Approach from above, the trail from below isn't much of a trail.

3 out of 5 stars nice 5.8 -

Got pumped when trying to figuer out the crux move. ended up hang dogging then blow'n off. Ended up doing the route after a short rest, and had no problem with the crux.

Pretty simple climbs but on a clear day there is not a better view in the bay
