This crag is never crowded, has long routes, and the rock quality actually better than rumor has it.

Porcupine Rock has a long and colorful climbing history. Though many have turned their heads toward other crags reputedly cleaner in nature, the short approach to great rock which just may require a bit of initial cleaning is hard to beat.
Park underneath the rock about 1 mile from the turn onto Montezuma Road.
Others may approach differently, however, I prefer to walk down canyon on the bike path for about 200m until reaching an old mining road (may be marked by a wood cairn). Branch out right and follow the casual trail/old road that leads towards Porcupine Rock. After 5 minutes, an old mine tailing pile is reached. go straight up the steep hillside for 25m, then find a cairned footpath to the base of the Rock.
