Description 

Campfire Crag is the massive formation to the west of Pixie Rock that despite it's size and wealth of routes has but a fraction of the traffic the Feudal Wall, Short Wall and Pixie Rock get, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Climbing is found on both the south and north faces, with the south-facing routes a good choice on cold, windy days and the northerly aspect nice on those warmer days.

Getting There 

Make a right at Billboard Buttress and take the road heading right (west) to some day use parking at the eastern end of the wall. The approach takes anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes depending upon which portion of the crag you visit.

Thin cracks/seams lead up the steep face which requires technical movement and the ability to hang out and fiddle in small gear (wires work quite well). The quality moves, good rock quality and lack of traffic earn this three stars out of five....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
