20 - Goldrush Rock Climbing
This is the area that can be seen immediately after passing Reed's while driving up Highway 120. It is on the left side of the second tunnel. The namesake crack can be seen off to the left just before entering the eastern end of the tunnel.
Park at Reed's and walk up the highway until you reach the tunnel. Either one, scramble to the top of the cliff and approach the climbs from the top. Or, hop the guard rail and walk down a dirty slope to the base of the cliff. Goldrush is the first climb you will come to . The rest of the cliff continues down and to the right.
