DescriptionThis shady rock sits atop the decent into the Underworld and its related rocks.
While quite small in height, approximately 30 feet, this rock offers a few challenging routes, and also a few warmups.
All routes off the Chew Tooth can be lowered off and routes can be top roped by accessing the top of the rock from the path.
Trails are closed from sunset to 6:00 am. Details
Getting ThereApproach Time: 15 - 25 minutes.
From the parking lot:Head downhill on the Saratoga Gap trail about 1/4 of a mile,until the first left turn, which indicated with a sign that it'stowards Catle Rock (0.3 miles).
Head up this trail until you see a signpost stating "trail ahead "though there is also a smaller trail that leads right anddownhill. You should take the downhill trail. This will shortly run you into a narrow dirt road which will have several branchings off of it. The one straigt ahead is the one your want to take.
This will quickly split into 2 trails, which you want to take the right one. After a very short while, you will see the top of the Chew Tooth on your left 10 feet left of the trail.
To access the top anchors, climb up, and there are the bolts. Tog et to the bottom, walk around either side, though the right approach is a little bit less loose.
Continuing on down the path pase the chew tooth will bring you into the Western Addition, and rocks like the Mud Wall, California Ridge, Henry and Otis, and the Underworld.
