The Conundrums Rock Climbing
Trevor Smith and Bailey Crawford making their way ...
This crag is west facing, sitting almost directly behind La Ola (The Wave)
. The hike to the base is strenuous, tending to keep the crowds away. This area sports shorter, more moderate climbs - mostly one to three pitches in the 5.9 to 5.10 range. This contains some quality climbs and is a great place to get away from the crowds.
To get there, cross the road from where the tin pavilion was/is, walking toward La Ola (The Wave)
. Follow the trail around the back of the wave (steep) to a notch between the main wall and La Ola (The Wave)
. From this point, drop down into the enclave below.
