The Savage Arena lies high above the Storm Mountain Picnic area, about 600 vertical feet according to our friends the Ruckmans. The highlight of the crag is the 3 star classic Savage Dance, which goes at 12b. There are 4 others, all in the hard .11 to .12 range, and all require gear except Savage Dance.
From the picnic area, hike along the main paved trail past the amphitheater. When you hit the big hole with the pipe in it, head right on a well worn trail. When this trail jogs left back south, head straight north to the obvious talus gully left of the Bumblebee wall. Head up this talus gully for about 10 minutes till it ends. Avoid the henious shwacking possibilites by escaping right up some 3rd/4th class stuff into another gully of sorts with a few cairns. Hike another 5 minutes to the base of the crag, which is southwest facing and in a fairly open area. The Ruckmans always scare me when they say "long approach", but this one wasn't too bad. No longer or worse than the approach to Choss Garden to me.
