Description 

Indian Rock is a locals' favorite because of its easy approach and accessible setting.

The main area is in the shade most of the time, though the tops of some routes can see some sun.

Indian Rock is primarily a bouldering area, but there are a few routes that you might want a top rope.

The descent is a simple walk off the back of the main rock.


Getting There 

See the area directions. Approach time: 10 seconds, even on crutches.

The upper holds of The Bubble.  Start just below these holds, use the lower section of the flake (up to where the large crack joins the flake) to a reachy move to a finger pocket.  Continue up and over the top using the jug and some less than ideal holds over the top.
