DescriptionA good cliff with better rock and routes than the name suggests.
Stays in the shade till 2pm.
- In wet weather conditions, skip this area. A day or two after rain or snow, the wall seeps considerably and most routes are unclimbable. In addition, the nature of this crag tends to be loose, holds here will break a lot faster in wet and moist conditions.
Getting ThereDrive 1.6 miles up from the Storm Mountain Picnic Area you'll see a steep wall (The Choss Garden) up in a gulley on the north side of the road. There's a house on the south side of the road. Park on the shoulder just up canyon from the house and enter the gulley where you'll run into the talus slope. 15 minutes approach.
At the top of the main talus slope stay to the left. Head up the rocky/pruned trail another 5 mins till level with the first routes.
