DescriptionA great crag with shade in the afternoon all year, as it faces somewhat East. Do not let the name fool you, as the crag is quite solid- the name comes from a stack of huge boulders at the base, and not from the quality of the routes. Each route here is 2 stars or better, and from left to right are named/graded:
1) Destiny (10c)
2) Sage (10a)
3) Song Of Stone (10d)
4) Serial Drilla (10b)
Of these, #3 is the best, but #1 the most unique.
Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. Details
Getting ThereIf you are already at a crag, continue right past the furnace to a low point in t he trail near the road and then head up and left (though further in the downhill direction overall) to reach the base of a huge cliff. There is a Bulky wall on the left with no real climbing on it.
Alternately, there is a parking spot on the dirt road on the way in with a sign indicating the approach as for the Junkyard and if this is your only destintation, one can approach from there. The time to the cliff should be 7 minutes or 4 minutes, respectively.
