Description Suggest change

Home of some of the earliest routes at Sunset. Classics include Bill's Route (5.8), Rusty's Crack (5.10a/b) and Jefferson Airplane (5.10a).

Getting There Suggest change

Climbers must approach via the Bluff Trail from the parking area at the Cravens House. The small parking area at the top of the climbing is 1-hour parking only. Follow the Bluff Trail up for a little over a mile until you pass the park service kiosk; shortly after this, you'll be at the furthest end (climber's left) of the Sunset North climbs.
