Description

This area gets early morning sun, but is in the shade for most of the day. A good afternoon spot in the warmer months and so far, a good place to avoid the crowds. Typical Calico Hills red stone, most of the sport routes are technical slabs with the trad routes being chimneys or wide crack systems.

Getting There

The Little Springs Crag sits up above Little Springs. This is the drainage to the south of the Ash Creek Area. The lower tier has a left arching crack/chimney on the left side that is visible from the road. To access this area, walk west on the road fromm the north parking area towards Ash Creek. When you get to the foundation, head south to the next drainage over. All of the routes are on the second tier with the exception of the previously mentioned left arching crack/chimney (Wide Glide 5.9)
