Description Suggest change

The Pit is a very unique pit like rock structure with three walls and a blocky overhang. The prime crack lines of BURSITIS and CLASSIC CORNER CRACK are so appealing that many of the local climbers first serious traditional leads are these two classic climbs.

Getting There Suggest change

From the Parking Lot, face the bike trail and locate the brown and white climber sign. Walk to this sign and up some stone stairs to the bike trail (the top of the stone steps are near the start of a fence). Turn left and walk to the end of the fence, passing faint climber signs painted on about every 6th post. A few feet past the fence, turn right and follow the stone steps up to the Big Cliffs. 
Follow the obvious trail, bearing right at the cliff. Obvious pit on the right side of all the climbing.
