Nice east facing wall with a handful of sport routes a couple of trad lines and a good amount of bouldering. Morning sun and afternoon shade so plan morning of afternoon climbing according to temperature. Most of the sport routes are 5.12 and up with one 5.11a and at least one line that is still a project. The rock here has lots of the really small pockets (that you can't get fingers into) that make some of the holds quite sharp and some nice bigger pockets. For some reason with the fracturing the majority of the holds face left.
Getting There [Edit]
Before you get to the Box turn off of hwy 60, turn left at the end of the first guard rail on that side where you can see a bunch of roads and a cross. Stay to the left away from the cross and follow this road for about .5 miles to the second right turn, the first is more of a two track. At the right there is a big open area, stay to the left and pick up the road. Follow this road about .6 miles to a rectangular parking area that has been nicely outlined with rocks. Big enough for maybe 6 cars plus. You will see an old steep road with lots of loose rocks leading up to the wall.
