Description Suggest change

A series of crags running almost a mile just below the north ridge line of Deep Creek Canyon. Most of the rock faces somewhat South (Southeast, South and Southwest). The rock is Volcanic and very similar to Big Chief. There are good views of Big Chief from Deep Creek. There are some very good routes here, but some of them need more traffic. There are many styles of routes here. Some Trad, some sport routes, and some mixed routes are all present.

Getting There Suggest change

I've heard about the crags for years, but when they appeared in the new guide I was hopeful that they would be easy to find. The directions are not horrible, but they're not great either. Here's a link to the parking area described for the East End Areas in the North Tahoe Locals guide.
