Description

Four routes from 10a to 12c. Rarely will you see anyone here, but the routes are fun, especially the 11a and 11d. East and south facing.

Getting There

From the typical parking at the end of the Calico road, cross the wash and head right towards the Monkey Bar Boulder, passing the Plumber's crack boulder after a couple of minutes' hike. Once at Monkey Bars, several trails allow a choice of wash, near the wash, and higher up. Staying out of the wash but near it seems best-you will be entering Gateway Canyon as the walls close in. Walk about three minutes past where you enter Gateway, past a couple of overhanging bolted routes that seem decidedly non-moderate-this is Conundrum Crag. If the routes you find appear very close together and quite easy, you have most likely found Family Crag and you have gone slightly too far. Backtrack without dropping back into the wash and you're right there.
