Description

Located in Gateway Canyon on the backside of Kraft mountain, the Cannabis Crag sits fairly high above the approach trail to Sunny and Steep. It gets sun until mid-afternoon and is a quiet, sheltered area that receives less traffic than Sunny and Steep. Most of the routes are steep and in the 5.12 range. Unless you are comfortable warming up on 5.11 (there are three of them), this may not be the place for you.

Getting There

From the Red Springs parking lot, make the general approach to the Monkey Bar boulder through the Kraft boulder field. From this boulder, follow the trail around behind Kraft Mountain into Gateway Canyon. Walk up the wash for approx. 800 or so yards then head right and scramble up a ramp to the base of the cliff. The cliff is characterized by three large, black waterstreaks. Approx 30 min. from the Red Springs parking area.
