Description

Ryan Campground provides a nice alternative to those wishing to escape the HVCG "scene". The campsites are situated around a large central formation known as The Manure Pile, which, despite its size, has relatively few routes. The main attraction of Ryan is Headstone Rock, which lies just east of the campground. This 50' rock phallus is home of two super classic moderates - the airy SW Corner (5.6) and the steep, well-protected Cryptic (5.8). In addition, the area has some good bouldering. Slightly Ahead of Our Time, freeclimbed by Kevin Powell and Darrel Hensel in 1976, is the first reported 5.12 in the Park.

Getting There

At an elevation of 4,300 feet, Ryan Campground lies 2.3 miles further down the road from Hidden Valley Campground, just past Cap Rock and the turnoff to Key's View. There are 31 sites. Camping is $5 per site per night. There is no water available.
