New Directions consists of five relatively small slabs: Parking Lot Rock, Generation Dome, Middle Cliff, Heart Rock, and New Directions Cliff. The slabs are located about a half mile north of Kernville Rock (Kern Slabs).

Getting There 

Drive about a half mile past Kernville Rock and look up the hill for Heart Rock and New Directions Cliff. Park in a turnout with a big tree in the center, just past Heart Rock.
