When I was in high school, we always called this "Indian Rock"...
BTW, The rangers used to only make one or two patrols around sunset to hand out tickets to people that park there, they never come around later at night, since none of us ever got tickets for drinking beer and stuff out there on weekend nights.
Scouted out the rocks with Ben. We'll be returning soon with the gear.
The ratings here are pretty soft--a 5.9 here is quite a bit easier than a 5.8 friction climb in Yosemite Valley. But it's still kind of fun to come out here and work on one's mossy slab technique.
Rock Climbing the San Francisco Bay Area rates this a 5.8 or 5.10b slab route, depending on whether or not you aid on the tree for the first 10 feet (Rock Climber's Guide to Skyline Boulevard calls it 5.9).
Well, Matthew and I aided on the tree ... a fun local winter climb to train for friction. Setting up a TR just requires a little class 4 but is otherwise pretty easy.
See the guidebooks listed for directions.
