DescriptionLots of sun in the morning leads to mid shade afternoons depending on the time. Most routes start in the shade and move into the big stuff above.
The rock quality here is good at times but can also be quite poor. Doing Virtual Light, i broke off a large chunk of rock. Most of the thinner climbs (think: harder) are on better rock.
There are two areas, one that goes up a ramp and another that is at a base of a cliff with a huge ledge. You can easily set up TRs here by doing some scrambling on the right side. Very loose, at your own risk.
Another option is to just climb some of the easy 5.10 climbs below the ledge that are quite short.
Getting ThereFrom house of cards you are looking at a 3 minute approach, enough time to warrant putting everything away but not enough time to think "am i lost?"
A lot of the green space and trees (the bank) have been ripped out so now there is basically nothing there for the first few routes. Apart from the climbs, of course.
