Description 

Short, sharp, shock. A good description of the climbing and the walk up to the crag. The climbs are relatively short, but they pack it in and good technique and finger strength are definitely two traits worth having at this cliff.

The climbs are located on several distinct sections along the cliff band. The approach path hits the crag at one of the best walls, but good climbs can be found left and right of this wall.

Getting There 

From the grassy parking area, hike up an old forest road for about 200 yards until possible to turn left and follow a trail up the hillside. Continue up the trail until to hit the wall. The hike should take about 15 mins.

On the right side of sector one is a face with an incipient crack running up it. This incipient crack ascends to a prominent roof. One can traverse left around this roof and ascend the left facing corner to an anchor station. This is Abalokov Rocks. This route is to the right of the sport route named Too Many Ledges.The paper guide lists this route as 5.10. Even on my worst hangover days, this route is not 5.10, but a wonderful 5.8....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

When we visited in July 2011 a number of the hangers were loose and one route Howl was missing its 3rd bolt hanger (not ideal since if you fell from the crux you'll have a very good chance of decking it).

A local really needs to buy a wrench!
