Description 

A great crag for an all day visit or a short trip on the way out of the valley. Most of the climbing is 5.11 and up, but there are a couple runout 5.10's that should not be missed.

Getting There 

Park at the Circle Creek parking lot and follow the road through the first gate. The crag will be on your left after ~10 minutes.

The bouldery crux is encountered as you move through crimps and huecos around the 2nd bolt. Stay focused and give'er as you punch it through this low boulder problem- you will be rewarded with a full recovery rest in the horizontal break above.
