There are many options to make this climb, rate from a 9 to a 10c depending on which variation you climb.

Good cam placements are available, but be prepared for 9+ difficulty for a trad lead.


This is located in the corner as high as you can walk, on the right side of the wall parallel with road, follow the trail, 100 feet up from a parking pull out. Hike back east until you see an obvious draw up to the rock face.


There are chains at top, and it can be hiked around all the way over on the right side of the crag and top roped.

Honey Pot is a fun, great route for a 5.10 trad leader, it has many variations possible, so make it as hard as you want from 5.9 to 5.10b. Check it out on top rope if you are unsure; two chain anchors are up top, access from an easy hike around the crag to the right.

At first I really disliked this route. I would definitely call it R rated. The rock quality is often iffy, where you can get gear it is often in not so great rock, or in places where it isn't really helpful (waist level above a ledge, protecting easy climbing, etc). Also, the gear is laid out such that it makes for some rope management and route-choosing questions. As a TR, this is actually quite fun though.
