Looking for afternoon sunshine? This little gem sports only a few routes in the 5.10 to 5.11 range. It is generally protected from the wind, yet in the sun making it popular in the winter months. This is a good stopping point on the way to the Stratocaster or Running Man walls. Be sure to check out "Quicksand" (5.11d) for a fun climb with some variation.
After leaving the parking lot via the trail to the south, you will hike over the first ridge. Look north (left) and you will see the well-protected alcove up an embankment. Head down into the wash immediately after your feet leave the white sandstone, before you reach the trail leading to the Pier, and well-before reaching the "mushroom" boulder. Climb-up the waterstreaked slope until you reach the routes. I like this crag, as it is only a five minute walk until you reach the climbs.
