Description 

The Taco is getting to be a bit more popular. Easily identified from the parking area 100 yrds up from the Ranch House if you look northwest. Many fun moderate routes exist on the west and east side. The west side is more slabby than the east. 15-20 min walk from parking area.


Getting There 

Park by the green gate up the road from the Ranch House, go through the gate (lock it back up) and walk north on the old Ranch Road for 15-20 min until you see a sign for the crag.

A great line that starts off with some intricate moves on superb stone with interesting feature. The crux is getting past the third bolt by negotiating a small overlap. Delicate friction and edging while deciphering the unique holds will get you through it. The route lets off for a bit, only to re-engage you for the last thirty feet on pronounced smears.
