Campfire Crag - South Face Rock Climbing
Alpentine Wall area. Photo by Blitzo.
This large, sunny face has a number of moderate crack and face routes of varying quality, but you'll find no classics here. With parking nearby and a minimal approach this can be a good place to go if short on time and don't wish to join the customary circus at the Short Wall/Fuedal Wall.
Make a right (if driving into Indian Cove) at the intersection just past Pixie Rock and park in any of several spots near the south face of the formation. Approaches are minimal.

Begin just left of the Fetus and make a step-across move/dyno to gain a ledge with the hands. (This maneuver will be more difficult the shorter you are) Hand traverse left, then power over a bulge (10c, height dependent) on knobs.

Above Kundalini and Femine Itch are two face climbs, each with 4 bolts. One is lower than the other. I can't remember which one is which. Cold Carnitas (5.10+), and Left Overs (5.9) are the climbs. I bellieve they were put up by Tom Beck and Steve Parker.
