Getting weather forecast...
Shade most of the day, great choice for warm summer days. Routes from 5.7-5.13, with most around 5.11. Longer than most of the other LOTL offerings. The rock is a unique, and really enjoyable form of quartzite that is very rare for our area.
From the upper parking lot, look for a trail heading northeast from the last turn in the road (40' before where you parked). Walk 150' down the trail to a faint fork. The obvious right turn takes you to the lower crags (Three Amigos, Tropics, etc). Go straight even though the trail is hard to see here. 30' later, a solid trail re-appears and switchbacks straight down the hill. Hike left or right around to the base of the crag. Should take about 4 minutes.
