Many fun routes with good rock quality. The north/east side has a lot of trees at the base that make it nice and shady. This formation is subject to raptor closures so it best to check the bulletin boards at the visitor center before hand.
Cross the dam at the reservoir. Follow the trail along the reservoir until you reach the creek at the end. Cross over the creek bed to the other side and pick up the trail again. Crud and Mud can be approached from a trail about 100 yards from the end of the reservoir. The Hand and The Frog are approached a little farther at a branch in the creek that leads to the base of the Hand.The Frog is the next large formation uphill and east from the Hand. From the creek bed at the base of the Hand head uphill towards The Snail. Walk around the west base of The Snail and around the South side. Continue up to the West side of the Frog. Follow the trail to the left to access the routes on the East face.
