Description

Barnum is a nice rock high on the mountain with a reasonably short approach and a number of easy but fun routes. Most of the routes are bolted with chain anchors. The 7500' altitude and trees for shade make this a comfortable area to climb when the temps are rising in the valley.

Getting There

Park in the turnout on the left side of the road about 1/10th a mile before the 18 mile marker. Cross the road and head up the drainage for the obvious cliff. The trail is now pretty obvious and well-marked with cairns.
