Comments: Never climbed in the area. Wondering if anyone can recommend some crags and camping. I will be with my kids, 5&8 yrs. burgeoning climbers who really like a short approach! Single pitch would be best. Any advice? Cheers Josh
Comments: Did JHaskell's variation to the 5.9 face traverse pitch yesterday. Definitely less sketchy, but certainly takes longer. Traverse left until you see a corner and head up. The pitch is actually pretty fun, hands in a corner. Top out the pedestal and then downclimb about 30 ft (not 10) down and right to a pedestal and slip around the corner. This part is kind of a pain in the ass and eats time. However if you've got it and aren't psyched on the original 5.9 option, check it out.
