Description Suggest change

This area has a few easy trad routes and about eight sport routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.11a. The routes are about 45-50ft and are made of sandstone with lots of pockets and plates.

Getting There Suggest change

Take the North trail behind the barn in the main parking lot. Upon reaching the valley floor look directly across the road for a bridge that marks the trailhead for a number of crags, take this bridge, then make the first right following signs for Johnny's and Tectonic Walls. Where the trail meets the cliff turn left for Tectonics Wall or Right for Johnny's Wall.
