Description

Gets sun in the afternoon. Lots of trees, so it stays kind of shady. A good option if it's a little cold. The rock is a little mungy, but I think this has to do with the fact that not that many people venture up here. Also, it's right next to the road, so if car noises bother you, maybe not a good choice.

Getting There

Head up towards the Wawona Tunnel from the Valley. Go through the tunnel heading west. Park on the right side of the road immediately after exiting the tunnel. Walk back towards the cliff.

The noise from the road can get into the way of communicating with your partner if you are on any of the pitches nearest to the tunnel. Otherwise, the car noise didn't bother me too much. Unfortunately, you can hear vehicles all over the Valley. Mar 10, 2010

This crag is even closer to its parking area than Swan Slab, super convenient and never crowded. Basically it's got a few good moderate climbs (5.9-10a) and a few good harder climbs (11c-12b). Jun 15, 2012
