Description 

Shady, south facing Drytooling

Getting There 

The Playground is on Grotto Mountain, in the middle grotto above the mine scar. Park at the Rat's Nest Cave parking just east of the entrance to the quarry. Follow the obvious trail out of the parking lot. Just before the power lines there is a flagged trail to the left. Trail trends up and left and follows an old road for parts. About 45 min approach.

Follow the road until it drops steeply down to the mine. At this point follow a well traveled trail off to the right.
