As you approach the cliff you come to the Solar Collector first. An easth facing wall that gets tallerr as you move to the right. The routes start at 5.10+ and progress to 5.12 as the wall grows and the lines get longer. The tops of these route will get wet in the rain as the routes go right to the top of the wall.
Take the Fixer Rd turn off to the right near a sign for Lee County. Make your first left and follow th epaved road which eventually turns to dirt/gravel. About a mile after the road turns to dirt look for a big gas tank on the left that has been painted to look like some sort of creature, turn right here and follow the road to the end at a RRGCC kiosk.
