Shady and heavily featured, this excellent crag would be swarming with climbers daily if it was in Hidden Valley Camground. The routes here range from 5.6 to 5.11c and except for the outstanding sport route Black and Blue (5.11c) are either all gear protected or mixed gear and bolts.
Circle around from the right side of the southeast side passing a few obstacles along the way. Perhaps 15-30 minutes from the parking area.
