Description

This is an exceptionally lovely spot. Being on the northside and below the tree canopy it tends to stay cooler for summer climbing. The rock is a textured granite with a tight grain that I found to be very climbable in humid weather. There are more mosquitoes than LG usually has. There are plenty of moderate problems but lots of hard stuff.

NOTE- My motivation is to share this area with other climbers. I don't know the FA's, proper route names, and consensus grades for the boulders. Some of these will be guesses so if you have better information than me try and keep it together and just send me a message and I'll change what I have.

Getting There

Drive to the Northside access parking lot. It's the third one. There is limited space so don't park like a jerk. Head down the trail at the back of the lot and 15' or so the trail will head up hill toward the rock face. On the left you'll see a trail that leads to the warm-up boulder.
