About The Aquifer:

The Aquifer is located in a shady corridor to the right of Tuna and Chips and the entrance to the Oasis, directly behind Fixx Cliff. It features two bolted sport climbs and two toprope routes, each with its own bolted anchors. The routes range from 65 to 85 feet in length, so a 70 meter rope is not neccesary. The bolted routes have varied and interesting features, and though recently established, feel surpringly solid (mostly.) The toprope routes, seeing less traffic, are apt to be a bit loose in spots. Belayers and climbers both enjoy a shady aspect between two walls, which makes this a great place to climb on a summer morning.
Approach: From the First Pullout, follow the path to Tuna and Chips, then continue past (east,) and scramble over some boulders and into a drainage between two walls. Follow the drainage by scrambling up to the left about 4-5 ft and into a narrow corridor. A few steps more lead to the base of Reverse Osmosis, where the line of bolts can be easily seen.
Approach Time: About 20 min.
