Description

The cliffs directly above The Planetarium. Some nice trad lines and a couple sport routes also. Stays sunny in the afternoon.

Getting There

Park at the Mystic trailhead on Chapel Road. Approach as for the Planetarium, but stay on the trail a little past the Planetarium turn-off until you reach an obvious wash. Turn right (roughly west) and hike/slog up the steep drainage to gain the cliffs directly above The Planetarium.
