Climbs usually get sun most of the mid day through the late afternoon. If it rains the night before, you may want to give the rock a chance to day and climb sometime after 12:00pm.

*The rock is on public land but make sure you park as close to the path as possible, making sure you do not block the residents that live at the ranch. A very short approach has a clear path and two z-channel steel members bolted together to cross the stream without getting wet.
As well the name of the slab comes from the nickname of the ranch. It is called "Cecilville" by the locals named after one of the past owners (and my landlord at the time) Cecil V. Clifford. Cecil was missing all his fingers except for his thumb on his right hand. He told me he lost them in a mining accident when a mine car somehow rolled over his hand.
This is just one of the many strange, bizarre and interesting memories I have of my winter in Cecilville.
I just had to tell you after googling Cecilville and came across your page. I didn't know that it was a popular climbing site! Thanks for resurrecting some fond memories!
