Description [Edit]

This is a great place for the intermediate climber. Tons of good routes from 5.10 to 5.12.

Getting There [Edit]

To get here, go down the canyon about 20 miles past a log hotel for tourists that is on the right, go past a bridge, then you will come to a pond and a dam, park here just before the dam. Walk across the dam and next to the pond. Follow this trail for about 20 minutes or so and you will come to the first climbs.
