Getting There

Head right on 7th Ave., left on Oak St., right on Queen St., left on S. Pinecrest, and go all the way to the (new) Twin Peaks trailhead. Park, but do not follow the Twin Peaks Trail. Instead, walk ~30 seconds farther up the road, around the bend, to a chain gate (you should be able to see the crag at this point). Go around the gate and find a trail leading down talus to the obvious wall at the bottom of hill.

Whoa, sorry about the late night drunken typing. Me and one of the bolters were kinda riled up late one night. I forgot about all this until a friend mentioned it at the bar. I apologize for being offensive, (I have that effect sometimes). As for the routes, the only FA I have at that crag is a gnarly handcrack around the left side. And by gnarly, I mean POS, rubble-filled 5.5. There might still be a purple sling and a locker I left up there, free booty if you find it. 'Biner is probably still good. Anyway, good on you for setting routes in the neighborhood, a lot of people around here appreciate it. I don't think I know you, Randall, but I apologize. I owe you a beer.
Cheers! Jul 23, 2011

Just a heads up, all draws and lowering biners were stolen over the last two days. So, instead of being able to show up and send - you'll need to bring your own snap-links. The lame asses took everything except the one sling that I wrenched the quicklink on, but they did take the clipping biner off. LAME. Jul 10, 2011
