Description Suggest change

A Classic, which the many pin scars prove. Right off the road, and easy top rope access. To get to the summit, hike up the left side, and then up a chimney to the right, or scramble up the right side. The rock is solid, and is south facing enough that in the winter it keeps warm until late in the day.

L->R:

A. Dark Magic, C1, 1p, 60', gear.
B. Left Crack, 8+, 1p, 60', gear.
C. Thin Crack, 9+, 1p, 60', gear.
D. Regular Route, 11, 1p, 60', gear.
E. Lieback, 10-, 1p, 60', gear.

Getting There Suggest change

At 8.1 miles from the entrance to Boulder Canyon (the first bridge you cross - see Yahoo! map) there is a small turn off, directly below Practice Rock. You can't miss it.
