The birth place of modern trad climbing, and of the incorrectly named Yosemite Decimal System, Tahquitz Rock above the small town of Idyllwild holds a very special place in American climbing history. With easy access, great granite and a huge variety of moderate (and a few definitely not moderate) multipitch routes, from 5.0 to 5.13, it has schooled generations of climbers.

 

Special thanks goes to local guide and guidebook author Bob Gaines for all his help on this poster!
