DescriptionBug Spring has two walls, east and a west wall. The west wall has nine climbs, the east wall has six. Grades range 5.7 to 5.10. This area faces northwest and doesn't get sun till noon. A good place to climb in the spring, fall and winter when we have moderate temps and not too much wind. The rock is granite that is mostly solid with some small loose stuff here and there. Horizontal cracks offer lots of handholds and gear placements.
Getting TherePark in the small parking spaces at the entrance of Prison Camp. Walk across the street through the gated dirt area that is used for road crew machinery parking. At the far east end drop into the wash. Follow this wash till it forks. Stay in the right drainage following cairns along the way going up two steep "dry waterfalls" with a lot of boulder hopping. Continue till you see the tallest most dominate 100 ft. tall cliff band on the right. Approach time 35 minutes.
