Description 

Long slab routes that ascend beautiful granite. Bring plenty of sunscreen as all routes face east, so they don't get shade until mid- to late-afternoon. Consider yourself lucky if you get in 2 pitches of shady climbing.

Routes tend to be sparsely bolted and cruxes are often not well-protected (many routes appear to have been bolted on lead). However, most anchors are equipped with nice rap stations, so if you feel the need to bail, it shouldn't be a problem. This is not a Hardman's area, but it is one that deserves to be taken seriously & thoroughly enjoyed!

Getting There 

Park below the reservoir & take the obvious hiking trail around the lake, heading south/west. It's about 20 minutes from car to crag.
