- ** Main access to this area is through private property, be courteous and don't do anything to draw attention to yourself ***
- ** There is a church at the base/ start of McIntrye Rd with signs of no trespassing. They do not own all of the land in the area and various other access points to the area, but please be courteous and try to avoid something that would cause a closure of the gate to the main access point of MckIntrye Rd.The main issue in the area is illegal dumping, so just don't show up in a dump truck and your fine. 4wd/Awd is advised if possible for access to the area.
This area is comprised of light vegetation that can be slightly bothersome to navigate, but is not much of a hassle. There is much potential here for first ascents, but the better problems have been established. The rock quality on established routes is solid with great texture, but for your FA you might have to deal with some choss, so bring a wire brush. As for the climbing, many of the established routes are going to be on large, slabby egg-shaped boulders, so bring lots of pads and spotters or just top rope many of the highball projects.
Juniper Flats has a remote feel, but there is a lot of local traffic and abuse with illegal dumping, graffiti, and 4wd misuse. Be watchful for bees and the occasional rattlesnake. This area is good to climb year round, but I'd avoid the middle of the day during the summer months.
