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.
