BETA PHOTO: Arch on the way to Land Before Time Wall.


Small developed crag with a few moderate routes, the short hike in from the parking lot makes this a good warmup crag after a drive to the Red.

Getting There 

From the main parking lot take the first trail to the right hugging the side of the cliff where the test bolt carnage begins. Pass under a small arch and the routes begin on the right.

Went to the wall to get my girlfriend on the 7 and 8 at the left side, we didn't really enjoy them.

I also did the 10+ route at the right side (first bolted route when you get to the cliff, not included here). A couple of hard moves off the deck give way to easier climbing, nothing special there either.

It's a good place to avoid the crowd at the more popular walls, but the climbing is definitely not as good.

Those first 2 on far left are not meant to be superb fun for most climbers. They are 'family friendly' routes for kids, climbers totally new to rock who are elsewise found on Bruise Bros. or Practice wall stuff instead. It's an area meant to relieve the pressure from other overcrowded newbee sites. Did you try the other 8, or the 9? The 10a is a nice route.
