Also known as the Hedgeclipper area, this is a nice collection of sport routes of moderate length for CWC ranging from 5.8-12c with an approach that's not too long. With South-facing exposure, these are good for colder days. Access to the top is via a fallen tree that leans against the rock at the North end of the wall.

Getting There 

Take the North entrance to the park and take the Creekside Trail (farthest South parking lot) past the waterfall. Cross the creek and backtrack to the North now. See the map for further details.
