The Untamed Rocks
The un-appreciated Untamed Rocks just north of Squaw Rock and South of Hopland off US101 in wild, uncharted, Mendocino County. About 5 climbs so far from 5.10-5.12 with more potential/projects! Most routes stay dry in the rain due to the huge blank overhanging headwalls (thus the name "Untamed") making it like an outdoor gym! Except this gym is natural and free :)
"Shit Face" aka "The Shrew" 5.10d/5.11a!? - slabby/vertical roadside sport climbing fun! 4 bolts + 2 bolt rap ring anchor.

Giovanni "G" Traversi brother of the world famous V15+ boulderer Carlo Traversi recently put up a new/undone arete below the main formation calling it "Ghost Dance" V11r!
