Description

The Penguins, a group of south facing spires located just northeast of the Candy Store, offer both sunny and shady routes on good rock. An ideal area to climb during the winter months.

Getting There

From the Candy Store, drive east toward the Whitney Cave cattle gate, but turn left (north) at the first dirt road. From the loop at the end of the road, walk northeast toward the prominent towers. ~5 minutes hiking from the car.
