Lovely place to top rope solo. There are 5 anchors (from what I saw) on the main rock (looker's right of the chimney). Each of them had a line which would go in the 5.8 to 5.9 range. There are also variations to make them more difficult.

Also, pretty simple to access the hangars from the top. Bring some extra cordalette to rig them. Only had a very small problem with choss; a few smaller rocks fell when pulling the rope after rappelling. Aug 12, 2016
Loved this place!

Close to the parking lot, easy/safe to set up a top rope, at least one good climb available for beginners like my son and I. Nice view. We loved it! Mar 16, 2015

Back in the day, each of the "established" routes had a number painted at the bottom. These numbers were assigned based upon difficulty, with 1 being the easiest, and 15 being the most difficult. From left to right, this is the order: 14 2 9 8 1 4 3 10 11 12 13 15 7 6. The boulder traverse starts at the base of 4 and finishes past the base of 6. Now that the painted numbers are gone, it is difficult to determine what is what, but it looks more natural. Mar 21, 2007
