Description

Four distinct fins NW of Rincon create some good arete and dihedral climbing. Many varied routes exist here--face climbs, bolted routes, hand and finger cracks--all of great quality. A little longer hike than most Eldo crags, but it's a great path and spectacular view.

Getting There

Park at the end of the canyon in the little lot on the right. Walk on the road for 0.1mi to the Eldo Trail. Take this to the Rincon Cutoff Trail, then when the Rincon trail heads across the talus, keep heading up the ridge towards the fins. Now scramble up some talus to the base.

Umph!  
Cadillac is not all "great quality" rock. There are some exfoliating/rotten areas that need to be climbed delicately with concern for the belayer below. Also, be warned of the great quantities of loose rock/[rubble] on the walk-offs. . . . That said, this crag has some mighty fine routes. Sep 30, 2005

The left side of this crag got tremendous amounts of shade today; it stayed shady until around 1.30 or 2pm. Incredible views. The rock wasn't any worse than anywhere else in Eldo. Actually really good rock on the pitches themselves. Aug 6, 2011
