Coyote Crag, one of the most popular crags in the area, is located at the southern edge of the Central Pinnacles and its sunny, well-featured southeast face is home to many classic moderates routes of the area.
Almost all of the climbs here have excellent rock and tend to be vertical with plentiful holds and a brief crux. Recommended routes here include Bye Crackie
(5.7), Coyotes at Sunset
(5.8), Black Magic Poodle
(5.9) and Golden Poodle
During the summer the climbs here go into the shade by mid-to-late afternoon, something to consider when the weather is hot.

Higher, interesting face climbing on good holds leads to a steep finish with amazingly good holds. The route ends at a bolted anchor just where the angle starts to kicks back.Lots of fun climbing on this with a few tricky moves down low and a slightly pumpy finish on incut holds. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
