Description 

Fertile Rock possesses a large, overhanging west face. The rock quality is very good, and the landings are good as well.

Getting There 

From the main parking area, head down the hill, cross the creek, head back up the hill following the drainage. The rock is just shy of where the dirt road crosses the drainage.
