Ron Andersons photo of the Cracker Cliff


3.5 miles up hill from woodfords intersection, and .9 of a mile below the hope valley store is the Apron, a visable crag that sets 200 feet or so off the highway on the north side of the canyon. One of the first crags to see activity as it was the closest and most obvious of the roadway crags. Granite varies from grainy to excellent. Cracker cliff is just up to the north behind the apron, and the large boulder in the trees to the west is "henrys Unit" with several problems. There are a mix of trad and sport routes between cracker and the Apron.
