DescriptionThe large collection of easy routes makes this a great area to take children or beginner climbers, with two exceptions. This area is remote and has not seen a lot of traffic, anticipate rocks breaking; children should be kept away from the base of the wall and all climbers and belayers should be wearing helmets. Additionally, this is a fairly long, though not strenuous, approach hike. About 30-40 minutes from the parking area.
When the trail nears the wall and you see a teepee, head left for a small area which has some stunning hard projects and a collection of short easy sport climbs. Head right for the 11s and a series of slabby 5.7s.
Getting ThereFrom the parking lot, head over the bridge and fork left to the main road. Continue straight past a number of pull offs and turns, when the road forks and there is a sign for highlands/serenity point, head right. (The other option is to fork right after the bridge and take the new trail to avoid the muddy section of the road. When the new trail intersects a larger trail, head left through the reeds back to the main road and continue on. It's about the same distance.)
The road will start to seem more trail-like. Eventually you will get to small tree downed across the trail, there is a rock pile which has the word "Nursery" scratched into it. The trail ascends steeply up the left, it is about 5 minutes walk past the turn off for Fruit Wall.
