Description [Suggest Change]

Jewels and Gems is a very small roadside crag. The six recorded routes are 60-70ft. It may be busy on a weekend, but most people don't stay long. It's also in the shade for the most part, making it a pleasant summer day retreat. The best routes here are North Country Club Crack 5.6 and In The Rough 5.7+

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Same parking as for the King Wall. About .2mi south of the Chapel Pond Slab parking area where the road bends left. Park on the side of the road. If you're heading south, the approach trail is on the left. Even though the approach is about a minute, it's hard to see the rock from the road.

My friend's guide book had some additional routes here. If I remember correctly, there is a 5.9+ just to the right of Family Jewels, and a 5.11 to the left of North Country Club Crack. I think these were TR-only routes, but nice to do. Sep 3, 2013

What's the variation that climbs In the Rough, then up left and then straight up the short, (10-12 ft) steep face at the top? Apr 28, 2017
If you are thinking about climbing here during the summer ... expect to find climbing schools already who have taken the popular routes. Nov 16, 2017
