Description Suggest change

Besides Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks there's a large abundance of rock in the valley. I would imagine that most has been explored and climbed but there's got to be a hidden gem here and there.
"The Others" is a general name for all those other rocks you see but just never get the gumption to go to.

Getting There Suggest change

Mucho hiking.
