Description

Overhanging sport climbing on conglomerate high up on the left side about 3/4 mile up the canyon. The crag is a combination of two big crack/cave features. Rock is generally solid with a combination of glue in and mechanical bolts. Routes are primarily 5.11+ and harder.

Getting There

Hike up the main road from the parking lot at the main entrance of the canyon until you start to reach the picnic area. Across from the first or second site (on the right) there is a trail on the left that leads up the hill. Follow this path until it meets up with a heavily traveled trail. Continue on this trail heading up canyon until you reach a junction at a powerline pole. Take this switchbacking trail up to the fifth switchback and look for a faint trail that heads west. Scramble up this trail until you reach the base of the cliff.

Who knows what kind of shape these routes are in 20 years later, but this is actually a good crag with steep, hard short routes that can be wired and turned into fitness burns. Surprisingly wide season if you work with the sun/shade aspect. A good, close to town resource for people with a sense of adventure. Jun 13, 2017
