Comments: Another thing that you should add to the beta photo is the hot springs! If you go across the bridge and turn left (south), go to the very first switchback and park, there is an obvious footpath that leads down to the springs (>1/4 mile walk). To me this is something that makes this climbing spot really unique and cool. Climb until you're sore and then relax in the springs and wash the pain away! One note is that you may encounter naked people at this spring, I have.

Just keep an eye out, they blend in amazingly well against the brown-red basalt.

Does anyone else know this a... more >>

Comments: From a FoCo Local,

The restaurants section is half correct and half not. Big City Burrito, Pickle Barrel and the breweries are in FoCo. The Sonterra grill and Borelli brothers are not. For good sit down mexican try Los Tarascos on College just north of Mulberry, ( a few doors up from Big City Burrito). For great pizza & wings check out the locals favorite Pizza Casbah located on Laurel just west of College.
