If I were clever, I would have scouted out the downclimvs before attempting this and know that this is actually the easiest way down.
Glass is a good descriptor.

Pretty good, but I don't know why it is a valley classic.
Did this in isolation after failing the end of Ahwahnee Fin.
V3 ★★★ Ahwahnee Fin — Classic
Wow. Highlight of the trip.
Monumental effort. Don't remember the last time I worked that hard for a V2.
First boulder I did in Ahwahnee area.
V3 ★★ Tic Tock Direct 5m — Very Good
Some good holds and moves on this one. The V8 version felt nails.
V1 ★★ Unknown 1 5m — Very Good
Worth a couple of laps.
V4 ★★ Unknown Problem 3m — Very Good
A bit grainy, but very nice. Powerful moves!
A small boulder with a good V4, located just north of the main Split Rock.
The split in between is smooth and has almost no hand hold or foot hold. On the right side of the boulder there's a crack which you can climb along but be careful for there is no room to place a landing mat. There's a lot of pointed rocks which if you fall on could snap your spine so climb with extreme caution
The obvious compression problem on the road facing side of the boulder. Sit start and make powerful and tensiony moves to a slab top out.

5.6 ★ Middle - Right 12m — Good
Not amazing, but the rock quality on the head wall is solid.

Didn’t have any trad gear, so scrambled to the top to set up a TR. Short but sweet!

Felt a fair bit harder than .10a, especially given that its neighbour is graded .10b.

Wetness at the bottom made the start feel rather tricky.

Surely this line had been done before, but I couldn’t find it in any guide. Classy slabbing on good holds.
Start on the left arête of the main face and ascend using holds on both sides.
A dyno problem near the left side of the face. Start on left facing side pulls and launch to good holds higher up.
Added personal stars '★'.
Start as for Left Route, then traverse low on a mix of different holds to top out around the corner to the right.
Start near the middle of the face, beneath a V-groove at the lip. Climb straight up on amazing holds.
Start at the far right side of the face and traverse left on a mix of holds. Top out as for Left Route.
A lovely slab line around the corner to the right of the main face.

5.10c ★★★ Step into the light 18m, 7 — Classic
This route reminds me how much I love climbing on granite and how sorely deprived of god’s stone I am these days. A solid dollop of excellent holds and moves.

Bit of a one move wonder, but good nonetheless.
