As per Tod's guide this sits in the lower west side. From the trailhead, follow it up to the bridge and fence. Bang a right through the fence and follow it up through the two switchbacks over the pass. Follow the signage to the Chicken Head Ranch. There is climbing all the way around this crag. Can chase sun or shade. love the climbing here. the routes are amazing. would love to know the person that put them up.
