California > Southern Sierra > Needles / Kern… > New Directions

Description

The farthest south of the New Directions areas. Lots of rock, potential for more routes.

Getting There

Access is one of 2 ways. Either a long mostly established trail from the parking lot past all the other crags, OR straight up from the road on a distinctly non-existent trail. From the road it look quite low angle. Looks can be deceiving.
