Take a double rack up to 4" with lots of slings in case you want to sew something up or run some pitches together. Offwidth gear is optional for some routes and necessary for a few. Again, if you wish to run pitches together, a 60m rope is necessary, and a 70m is advised.
This crag lies immediately uphill and across the road from the old (now closed) Jackson Creek Campground.
Drive down Rampart Range Road from Sedalia, passing the Devil's Head Campground, and turn left to go back up Jackson Creek Road a little over a mile (or maybe several miles) to the old Jackson Creek Campground (which is gated and closed off) until you see mile marker 502. There is parking space for a car or two not far from the gate.
Look uphill and hike up a place of your choosing (no trail) to the cliff base. There are some cairns on the right side of the drainage directly across from the campground, but they are a little hard to see. If you can't find them, just bushwhack up to the rock. Either way, this should take 7-15 minutes, depending on your fitness and load.
