Description 

This area gets early morning sun, but is in the shade for most of the day. A good afternoon spot in the warmer months and so far, a good place to avoid the crowds. Typical Calico Hills red stone, most of the sport routes are technical slabs with the trad routes being chimneys or wide crack systems.


Getting There 

The Little Springs Crag sits up above Little Springs. This is the drainage to the south of the Ash Creek Area. The lower tier has a left arching crack/chimney on the left side that is visible from the road. To access this area, walk west on the road fromm the north parking area towards Ash Creek. When you get to the foundation, head south to the next drainage over. All of the routes are on the second tier with the exception of the previously mentioned left arching crack/chimney (Wide Glide 5.9)

This wall is not in the shade during the summer months until late afternoon. It is in the shade for almost the entire day during the winter months.

Lesser-known wall, with some great climbing. Only downside is due to it's low use, some routes are not very clean.

Anyone have better description on how to get to this crag?

If I read this correctly, Chad, this area is near the gully that holds Dirty Rail. Basically, its west and a bit south from the Kraft parking lot.

To reach this crag walk just past where you would cut up the gully heading towards Dirty Rail and do a short scramble up to the left of the gully. The wall can easily be seen from the kraft parking lot. All in all it's a short and easy approach.

The rock quality is quite good for a newer area and the routes are a lot of fun. This spot is well worth a visit.
