This crag is situated well off the main trail in the West Grapefruit area. The area is secluded and has great views of the surrounding environs. The rock isn't as slick as the rest of the area's limestone, but the rock tends to exfoliate on some of the routes. The routes are worthwhile and the setting is blissful.
Follow the trail that leads to First Rock and continue following the ridge West as you descend the ridge line (the Pipeline is visible lookers left). The trail will split after about .5 mile, take the trail North-West into the tree line and you will come into contact shortly thereafter. Approach time 8-10 minutes.
