After climbing in the area a few days prior we discovered a new granite wall that should host several climbing routes. This morning we followed a flowing creek around Peak 4746 to get an up close view of this hidden dome. Unlike other treks to reach some of the crags in the area (completely covered in acacia and oak), this hike was pretty tame. The sycamores are beginning to leaf out and the wildflowers are dazzling. We were able to reach the wall and were treated with cracks that split the featureless granite slabs. A return trip should yield several new climbing routes. From the top of the climbing area we headed up and over the peak and back to the vehicle.

The fire that blasted this area over a decade ago has made some of the hiking fairly miserable. There are several areas where the brush is so thick and thorny it is close to impenetrable. A little stubbornness and long pants will get you through most of these sections.
