Description

This is a nice little cragging cliff that gets shade and is home to a few easier (5.9 - 5.10) climbs of one to three pitches in length. The namesake climb is the classic -- a crazy wide crack and knob climbing affair.Gets morning shade for the first four hours of light and then sun rest of the day.

Getting There

Drive out of the park on 140 and park at the pulloff near the old generator plant. Walk up the road past the conductor crack trail, two hundred feet or so and pick up an excellent trail that leads up to the cliff. Hiking time is about 10 minutes.Note: There is currently a tree on the trail, you'll walk over it and then go 'up' along the tree for best approach.
