Description

This area is a complex series of crags on the hillside below "The Watchtower" and is on the other side of the ridge from the Main Area. The crags face southwest and are in the sun all day. About 20 routes, 5.8 to 5.13a, on a number of formations. Several of the easier long routes are around the corner to the left and below the "The Watchtower", which sits at the top of the hill and overlooks the area.

Getting There

Approach is the same as "The Dude Ranch", continue to the end of the road. These crags are visible to the east and up the hillside 600 yards. Follow the obvious trail to the base of the main cliffs. You can also approch this cliff by going up to "The Watchtower" from the Main Area and walking down.
