Once you see the section of the main trail that's neatly lined with rocks on both sides, walk into the clearing on the left and follow the trail as it meanders away from the main trail.

Once the path starts uphill, look up ahead and you should be able to notice a bunch of red tape that marks a barbed wire fence, some twenty or thirty steps ahead. Follow the fence to the right and walk around it, then continue following the trail. After maybe 100 feet, you'll start noticing a clean rock face on your left, behind the semi-forested landscape. This is the climbing area. You should see some clear or open paths through the brush.
