Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

A broken crag with 3 moderate routes offers some shade and a short approach. As of 2010 the routes are a bit scruffy but will surely clean up with some traffic. All 3 anchors can be accessed for easy toprope setting around the right side.

Getting There

From Hammerhead rock (a short distance upstream of mile post 5) head up the trail looking for an overgrown spur to the left before the main trail veers right through the drainage on the left. Follow the spur a couple hundred feet to the base of the climbs. Approach time 3-5 min.
