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.
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.

Fun RF flaring finger to hand crack/flake system on great rock. The first half is the hardest then eases up a bit. Takes gear great. The crack ends about 40 feet from the summit and the run out is a bit heady to the anchors on the west side. Not hard climbing (5.5 or so) but watch the rope drag....[more] Browse More Classics in ID
