Getting weather forecast...
The Layer Cake is the large lower angle wall in the gully to the left of the The Jobsite. The wall's southwest aspect makes it great to climb on during the colder months but can bake your brains out in the summer. The climbing is on mostly good rock with occasional bits of crumbly stuff here and there. There is a good mix of single- and multi-pitch routes that are easy to moderate; a good place for warmups or an easy outing.
Hike up the canyon from the parking lot, take the left fork in the road, continue up to the end of the pavement by the large cement water tank. From here, follow the trail up through some switchbacks that lead you to the right edge of the gully: this is The Jobsite. Walk past The Jobsite into the gully and then up the gully to a small trail on the right side in the trees.
