Getting There

Go about 6.8 miles up Boulder Canyon, and park on the left side of the road about 200 yards after passing Cob Rock on the left side. (This pullout is also used for Happy Hour Crag.) There is a tyrolean across the creek about 200 yards upstream of this pullout. It's attached to a big flat boulder on the road side, and a big tree on the far side.

You can also park at the Bihedral pullout, 7.0 miles up the canyon on the left side, and walk 150 yards downstream to the tyrolean.

From the far side of the tyrolean, take a trail to the left to Witches' Tower. Then continue up and right on a steep trail to get to Sherwood Forest. About 100 yards up, the bolted face climbs appear.
