With four moderate, well-protected climbs from 5.6 to 5.10a, this crag is now worth the drive for moderate climbers like myself. You can park right below the rock and avoid the crowds on a warm summer day. Thanks to Ben Schmitt for putting up the new climbs. Buy his inexpensive guidebook with great descriptions and photos of hundreds of climbs at Heaven's Gate and Eleven Mile Canyon, and help support someone who's given a lot to the climbing community. Thanks, Ben! Jun 5, 2013
