Description Suggest change

This cliff still hosts an amazing variety of grades with steep climbing on in-cut plates. The best part is that almost every line warrants 4 stars! Make sure to checkout Breakfast Burrito, Whip-Stocking and Check Your Grip.

New routes are still being added in the incredible amphitheater at the far right of the crag.

This crag initially named for its instant access. This was before the roads were closed by the oil companies. Regardless of the closure it is still a quick hike from the parking lot. DO NOT DRIVE UP THE OIL ROAD OR PARK AT THE CLIFF.

Getting There Suggest change

From the Drive-By/Bob Marley/Chica parking lot, continue down the main driving road for a short bit (~100ft). When the road splits, take the road forking off the right that goes up a hill. Continue on this road and stay right at the fork(s), taking the lower road with the 'Shackle Rod' sign. The approach trail and crag will sit on the left side of the road. About 10-15 minute walk, total. Drive-By and Bob Marley are connected via a trail along the cliffline.
