This crag is a good spot for beginners, kids, groups, and sometimes mosquitos. There are 6 nicely-bolted sport routes ranging from 5.5 to 5.9; also two routes and many variations that can be top-roped. There are 5 double top anchors with snap links, three of which are shared by two routes. You can walk to or from the top anchors, but use caution and protect yourself getting to them.
Follow directions to Hurd Creek Crag. Continue past the Hurd Creek parking spot for about a half mile to the end of the 2WD road, where there is a turnaround at a water diversion structure. Park here, then hike about a half mile up the 4WD road that angles right up the valley. After a creek crossing that would challenge most off-road vehicles, start looking uphill to the left until the crag appears through the trees about 200 feet above the road. The close (downhill) end of the rock is an overhanging face and the climbs are around the left side.
A. Route 1, 8, 1p, 40', bolts.
