DescriptionThe Training Grounds is located in the lower west valley of the Devil's Head area. It contains 6 routes at present, all easier than 5.10. The wall faces east which provides morning sun or afternoon shade. The wall is about 50' high and well featured with chickenheads and incut holds. This is a great place for the novice leader.
Getting TherePark at the regular fire tower trailhead. Hike the trail to just before the bridge and pass behind a log fence onto another trail on the right. This is the old trail to the fire tower. After hiking approximately ten minutes, and after a big switchback, look for a another trail on the right which heads south. This trail is marked by some cairins and logs. Another 5 minutes of hiking will take you up over a pass. From here, the trail descends to the south. A fork marked with signs pointing to the Training Grounds to the right and Chickenhead Ranch to the left will soon be reached. Head to the right, uphill, on a trail marked with cairins. The Training Grounds will be on your left. After reaching a level pass head left, next to the rock, to the start of the routes.
