Area Description Suggest change

A more moderate section of Comp Rock, this part of the crag has a good handful of hits and misses under 5.11. With a good share of cracks and face climbing, you'll find some really nice, well done classics mixed with a couple of no-star bombs. An exposed area, this crag sees sun almost all day.

Approach Suggest change

Follow the signed/designated trail to Comp Rock from the lower parking lot. Take a marked trail between the lower Comp Wall and Wedding Bell. A scramble to the base of the routes is necessary.
