This is a small grouping of four crags on the steep, wooded slopes above Horseshoe Lake (hence the name) with fabulous views of the surrounding area. Most of the climbs here are sport routes, with a few exceptions, on high quality alpine granite.
Park at the Lake George parking lot and start hiking on the Crystal Lake Trail. Hike uphill for several minutes until you reach some large water tanks and then leave the trail heading west. Cross over the ridgeline and then contour along the hillside following some metal pipes until you reach a stream. Head uphill where you'll see the Spring Crag. The approach takes 15-20 minutes if you hit it right.
