Description Suggest change

This details all of the various crags centered around Lake Arrowhead, the largest town in the area. Lake Arrowhead is very exclusive and highly regulated, but the climbing is not. Lots of easily accessible rock and excellent rock makes the area a playground for the adventurous climber.

Getting There Suggest change
