Description 

Knob Hill is a nice little area next to upper Cascade Falls.
A great place to learn to lead, with beautiful views of Lower Merced Canyon.
The rock is generally quite knobby and the routes range from 5.7 to 5.9.

Getting There 

From the Valley, drive up past Reed's Area. Park in one of the Cascade Bridge pull-outs.
The crag is up and right on the right side of the creek.
A well worn path takes you to the cliff.
To get off the top, go down left through third class boulders. Route finding can be tricky.
