This area is on the North/East side of the Gorge, and most cliffs get morning shade and afternoon sun.

Getting There Suggest change

From 19 Take Ames Heights road west there are a few different parking areas, two main ones, but they aare both about 1-2 miles from 19.

For access to Rubble Rock, Sandstonia/Tattoo Wall, and Kingfish, use the Good Luck Cemetary parking on the left, approximately 1.7 miles from Route 19.  Once you're parked, you'll see the giant powerline cut.  Follow that and signs to get to your destination crag.

For all the other crags, from Little Head Wall to Beer Wall are best accessed from the Bubba City Parking, which you can find on your right, approximately 1.5 miles from Route 19, and is about 2/10 of a mile past Peregrine Ridge Rd.  Cross the street and take the marked trail, following signs.You have reached the Bubba City area after climbing down a ladder and a rope.
