Description

A wonderful moderate climbing area, mostly 5.8 and 5.9. If you're coming up here to lead these (and they are nice), you might consider bringing a set of hexes and/or some larger cams (up to about #4 Camalot). Many of the climbs can be led on a standard rack, but two or three are w i d e.

Because of the ease of top-roping (most climbs have rappel anchors), this place can be crowded on weekends. Also a bit "buggy."

Getting There

Follow the trail past Neat and Cool, and turn off at the next main junction (signs). Follow up and up, past stairs and several switchbacks, until the Loop Trail crests, and then descends more stairs. Then you are almost there. The trail will lead directly to the wall, and you cannot possibly miss it when you are there. ~20 minutes.

If you need to get up to (or down from) the top of the cliff, there is a trail that ascends a root-filled gully on the left side past Harry's Crack, 5.8.
