Description Suggest change

The far right end of Crow Hill is known as the Practice Face, because of its classic easier lines and easy TR/rappel anchors. Bring a couple 20-foot slings or some rope to build your TR anchor, or wait your turn and lead one of the easier lines on the cliff.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the trail along the cliff bottom to the right side. The practice face is characterized by the elevated belay area and the lowest-angle rock on the cliff. Descent is by the trail (walk north, then down the hill) or by rappel (three sets of anchors, about 10 feet back from the cliff edge).
