Description

This is the rock face that gives the area its name. The two cracks that form the "X" are visible on the south face. There are routes on the south, west, and east faces. Most climbing is done on a toprope, but routes like Left X or Right X make for good leads.

Getting There

From the parking area, follow the good trail past the Elementary Wall and Gold Wall. You are there when you reach the two obvious cracks forming a "X".
