Description

The Western terminus of the Marg's Draw ridge is the Camel's Head. From the south, it really looks like a camel with its hump just behind its head. Carl Schnebly wasn't fooling! The routes on the Camels Head are a mix of old skool trad adventures, and high school bolted lines. All are multi-pitch and have pretty nice views. It gets lots of sun but can get really windy up there. The short trail approach make this a nice intro area.
The best way down is to rap from a bolted anchor above Frosted Flakes with two ropes, Or to traverse to the East and climb the mini summit of Lucy and rap with a single 70m.

Getting There
