While the Jumbo Rocks area in general does not yield much in the way of good climbing, Conan's Corridor is the exception to the rule. There are at least 8 routes on the main (east) face, 5 of which are worthy of multiple stars. Must-do's include Colorado Crack (5.9), Gem (5.8), and Spiderman (5.10a).

Gets morning sun.

Getting There 

From the intersection of the main road and Jumbo Rocks Campground, hike approximately 1/4 mile north, traveling over some slabby terrain, through some brambles, and finally through a slot (Conan's Corridor) which opens up into a 100' east-facing wall with several excellent cracks. Total approach time - 5 minutes if you don't get lost. The Corridor Face goes into shade in the early afternoon.
