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
