Rook area is a cluster of exposed rock. For other climbs, try walking through the chimney and explore the innards of the area. If you walk around near the ledge, youÂ’ll find a ten-foot roof with cam-placements and thread-throughs hidden behind a small ledge. The roof exits on crimpers and open-hand grips and leads to a small tree.

Getting There 

After crossing the river, walk left past a few houses and through a basketball court. Follow the trail to your right and turn left upon seeing a sign.
You have to climb over a six-foot ledge to get to the main climbing area. Most prominent would be a chimney right to where two 40-foot faces meet. To the right of that chimney is Rook.
