Unique route here, a must visit. Excellent photo opportunities from all the jumbled boulders around the base of Equinox (5.12c). Best time to visit is afternoons (west face gets sun) in the winter. It can be windy here, but it's nice and quiet otherwise.
Geology tour route south for about 3.7 miles to pullout #5 (on west side of road). The rock formation you see directly to the west about 3/4 of a mile ahead is Jerry's Quarry. Walk to this formation, crossing one obvious wash and walk around the north side of the rocks. Once you reach the formation's west side, the highest boulder facing west is split by a stunning finger crack. This is Equinox (5.12c). Head straight towards it over the jumbled boulders. There is an excellent belay area at the base of the route.
