Access Issue: Writing in chalk Details

Description

This is a great collection of easy cracks for the beginning trad leader, although access to their starting ledge can be interesting, by way of the wide Transporter Crack (5.6) can be interesting.  

Getting There

You can walk the length of most of Fern Butt to get here, or you can do the rap-in from the Endless Wall trail (which is especially nice if you're just wanting to access the ledge).  Before you cross the bridge over Fern Creek coming from the Fern Point parking lot, head south west and don't cross the stream; you'll find a trail that continues along the cliff top past Fern Point Rappel.  Star Trek Wall is shortly thereafter.  Be careful, there has been at least one accident in which a climber rapped off the end of his rope here.
