Description 

The Iceberg is basically a huge block that is detached from the main wall. There are several routes in the cool/shady corridor behind it, as well as several routes on the front of the Berg. The rock quality is excellent. The bolting on some of the 'sport' routes seems pretty sparse.

Most all routes have bolted anchors, but be sure to inspect them and in some cases (chucks route) think about backing them up if top-roping.


Getting There 

Follow the right branch of the trail out of the far right corner of the parking field. This should be the first cliff you get to on that trail. You should see the giant 'Pocket Boulder' on the right about 100 feet before you hit the cliff. Approach time is about 5 min.
