DescriptionThis area was developed with the intent of having a child/new climber friendly area. There are currently 14 routes, most of which are TR only, but there are a couple of harder lines that can be led.
The rock is generally good, but as it's a new area, be careful. There are 3 separate formations. The slab on the right is called Teddy Bear Slabs, the central formation is Rapunzel's Tower, and the left formation is The Dirty Diaper.
To set up TRs, hike around the left side of the hill and easily access the tops of each crag.
Getting ThereThe approach takes about 2 minutes, seriously. Park at either the Green Slabs pullout or the next pullout up the mountain. There's a prominent road cutout between these two pullouts, with a guardrail on the west side of the road. At the north end of the guardrail, start hiking up the steep hillside and The Nursery is the very first crag collection you see.
