California

Climbs 30 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude 344m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
Amazing routes up to 66m, including the extremely worrying (if run-outs worry you) California Arête (E1 4c) or the vast 66m Central Sadness (E5 6a), or then the better-protected Stairway to Silence (E6 6b) and Big Sur (E6 6c). Only one route each at E1, E2 and E3 though.

Access notes
A self-contained quarry hole (but deep!) to the R and behind Dali's Hole. From Bus Stop Quarry head as if for DH, then follow the rising path around the R side of the weird pool. Up the scree slope to the tunnel mouth. Continue. Out of this is part of the area, but the rest is through another (wet) tunnel to the area's floor.
