Description Suggest change

This portion of the hillside has about a dozen routes or more ranging from to 5.8 to 5.12 with the climbing on the usual knobby cracks and faces. Rock quality varies from horrible to excellent with the darker rock, as always, being the best.

Getting There Suggest change

Park in the large lot for Rattlesnake Canyon and hike east, crossing a wash, and hike up the steep and somewhat loose hillside (watch out for ballbearings underfoot) to the obvious formations near the top of the hill. 

  • The approach takes 20-30 minutes.
