The Comic Book Area
offers an opportunity to get away from the crowds of the nearby Echo Rock Area
and enjoy some fun crack and face climbs with generally good quality rock.
Drive east past Echo Tee for about 0.5 miles along the Bighorn Pass Road, as if heading to Barker Dam, and park in any of several turnouts. From here a marked trail heads south along the edge of the hillside to the various climbing areas. Plan on 5-20 minutes approach depending upon which crag you plan on visiting.
Weather station 9.7 miles from here
