Drive in from the paved road passing the Entrance Area Crags
and the Camp Host and stay left as you enter the mouth of Box Canyon. Continue ahead about 0.5 miles to the road's terminus at a parking area
below a small fenced off hillside which is the main parking area for the majority of crags in the area. The main parking area can fill up quickly on busy weekends but luckily more parking exists back along the access road if needed which only adds a few minutes of walking to the approach time.
Some of the crags at the mouth of Box Canyon have parking near them and should be indicated in the indiviual crag pages; check the individual crag pages for detailed approach information. Approach times here range from 1-20 minutes from the closest parking area.
Weather station 16.3 miles from here
