Description

Several routes ranging from 5.9 to 12c. Routes face East and West so you can chase the sun or shade. Most routes can be top-roped, but are also bolted (a couple require gear).

Getting There

Walk a couple minutes on the trail to the East. The trail will take you to the top of a flat rock formation. The routes begin below you. To the left, Suck It Up Crybaby (5.12b) is visible; to the right, Dr. Diaper (5.9 crack) is visible, as well as a couple others. Go down the trail to the left, or follow the formation to the right to a steep trail to the base of the climbs.
