Description 

This area contains excellent short routes on good varnished rock as well as longer routes. Many of the routes are shady, making this a good place to hide in warm weather.


Getting There 

Park at the Icebox canyon trailhead, just past Willow Spring on the loop road. Approaches start on a good trail leading south from the parking lot.
