Some areas require a guide.


Crux is at the bottom, then you follow jugs up the gently overhanging face.


This climb is on the west face and very hard to miss. The obvious tall line of huecos running up the wall facing the closed road.


pads and spotters, very high with bad landing.

As of 23 March 2011 the entire scary boulder is marked off with tape stating "no climbers." I think they closed the rock because some woman had fallen and broken her leg the day before.

sweet jugs, multiple knee bars including a no hands near the top, not that they are necessary. Beware the hollow flake at the top.
