Description [Edit]

This tall, east-facing wall is one of the better crags at NJC and offers several long, sustained moderates as well as some shorter, more difficult ones - all within view of your vehicle. Morning sun and afternoon shade.

The Scene Is Not For Sale (5.10d), Crossfire (5.12a), Double Kneebar Ranch (5.12b/c) and Bad Seed (5.13a/b) are some of the classics to be found here.

Getting There [Edit]

Continue along the approach road past Roadside Crag (on your left) and the Boyscout Wall (on your right) to the road's end at a fenced parking area. Crossfire Crag will be to the west and slightly north and is identified as the large east-facing crag facing the parking area. Note: Crossfire Crag is directly across from Campsite #9.

Approach the crag via a good trail which heads up the hillside from the vicinity of the parking area. Plan on 3-5 minutes for the approach.
