DescriptionThis small formation sits in the Indian Cove amphitheatre (between the group and family camp areas). There are a handful of short, fun routes in the 5.6 to 5.8 range.
This is one of the most popular areas for beginner groups, and on any given weekend you will find about a mile of webbing wrapped around the tops of the rocks, and a half dozen or so TRs set across the small bowl. There's nothing too staggeringly fun here, but a few routes that are worth doing on a leisurely day sometime.
Be warned, though, this south-facing bowl pretty much channels the sun. It can be HOT!!
Getting ThereCircle crag is the small, short bowl at the north side of the Indian Cove amphiteatre, closest to the benches. Drive into the family camp area and turn right -- stay to the right and there will be a small parking area (often full of Boy Scout vans and the like).
Alternate approach: park at Billboard Buttress and head west.
