Campfire Crag - South Face Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: McStain topo
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.

Make easy moves to the first bolt (drilled angle) about 20' up and then wander up the narrow, low-angled rib above passing two more bolts and an optional knob tie-off just past the last bolt. It's a little ways from the last bolt to the anchor but the angle kicks back and it gets easier.Two bolt anchor for the belay but it's best to rap off the anchors just to the left on McStain. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

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.
