Access Issue: Tree Preservation and Rappelling Details

Description

Small area, but a good alternative when the larger areas are taken. Very shady, good photo-ops, relatively straightforward gear anchors. Routes in the 5.5-5.10 range. Watch out for wasps.

Getting There

Exit upper parking lot far end, walk through meadow and past stream, come to large clearing. Make a right on carriage road, then left at the immediate fork. About 50 feet down on the left, there's a blue/yellow-blazed access trail heading towards what looks like a jumbled corner. Follow that trail up and to the right. When you see a dihedral with a small alcove and large chockstone about 30 feet up with a large roof just ahead, you've arrived.

Routes from Left to Right

Some say the rightwards traverse is like a mini Dangler. (spoiler - there are footholds on the face below the rail)
