Crack Attack Forever. I guess this is the first really developed area starts as you are going down the dusty road.

Getting There 

Go until you see the Historical Cabin with a picnic table. Park and the cliffs are above.


Per george wilkey: watch for snakes, rattlers.

The short offwidth route near the cabin has a very loose block on top!

Coop, if you're talking about the short offwidth route that's on the mini-tower, leaning up against the wall, the block may be mostly gone now. I climbed that route in late May and ended up pulling some of it off. It's probably safer now, but it's still a sandy mess.

Yes, glad to hear. The crack was wider than I thought and I had 1 tipped out cam in the wide spot. I ended up downclimbing the route after the block on top almost came off in my lap and didn't have time to clean it.

How many of these lines have anchors on them? I've read that many of the routes here don't have any anchors and are multipitch, but all of the routes here are single pitch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
