Mostly sport climbs but also a few nice gear routes. The climbing here is mainly 5.10b-12c with some excellent sustained routes and also some routes in the woods further right, which offer nice climbing on short shaded walls.
From the Bank campground, follow the road to a point where you can spot a now obvious trail on the left (approx 1/2 mile from campground ?), leading up to the cliff. The trail switchbacks to the base of the climbing and this will tell you if you are in the right area, by the trail you are on. Upon arriving atop the trail you will be by a block separating 3 routes to the left and others right.

This is going to be quite hard for shorter people (under 5'6") as you will have to use desperate crimps (5.10 Haha). Not a really great warm up as the climbing is in your face from the start.

There is now a sign marking the trail to get to the Cactus Rose Cliff, it is a short walk East from the small parking area below the Piggy Bank. Please do not use the trail directly from the parking area.

Anybody have any info on the route on the far right (third line) of the Skinheads Wall?
It starts in some dirty ledgy stuff and climbs into some pretty cool and sharp pockets towards the top.
