Description

Heavily featured and often shady, this excellent crag would be swarming with climbers daily if it was in Hidden Valley Camground. The routes here range from 5.6 to 5.11c and except for the outstanding sport route Black and Blue (5.11c) are either all gear protected or mixed gear and bolts.

Notable routes here include the crack/face combo of Flustered (5.9), the runout and dichotomous My Favorite Things (aka Blue Grass) (5.10c R), the discontinous cracks of Blue Ribbon (5.11a R) and the technical and brilliant Black and Blue (5.11c).

Getting There

Circle around from the right side of the southeast side passing a few obstacles along the way. Perhaps 15-30 minutes from the parking area.
