An excellent crag that can be discerned by the multiple roofs that lace it. The large roof on the left that is split by a hand crack/ OW is the cliffs namesake, the Gong Show. This area doesn't go into the shade till about 1pm in the summer and can be very hot on hot summer days in the morning.
Drive 4.5 miles to the Big Meadow campground and park (Please park on the road). Find your way across the stream and follow the climbers trail up the stream until it turns right and goes uphill. You should be able to find a use trail most of the way to the Crag. The trail ends just below Gong Show. Don't start up the hill until you find a good use trail.

Climb the first 20ft. of 'Main Attraction.' When the climbing starts getting steeper, head out left onto the slightly overhanging flake feature with good holds and bad feet. When the flake runs dry, boulder your way to the "baseball" knob and rock over onto the slab. Don't clip the bolt out left, but do clip the bolt above your head once you are standing on the "baseball." The ending is a link-up....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

A friend and I lost a dog up in the Hilton/Davis Lakes area on July 16th. If anyone notices any sign of a lost, 90lb, black/brindle (white chest) hound dog roaming around in the woods, please call David at 305-333-8681. Any sign of him, however uncertain, will be much appreciated. Thanks everyone!
