Description

The Dark Side gets afternoon shade.

Getting There

Park in the big pullout south of Ophir turn. Walk east and then southeast uphill looking for the big water pipe.

Approach following the pipe. You will then head up to the walls depending on your desired crag. Generally follow trails some bushwhacking to the base of each crag. Once you reach the base of the walls, you can also traverse to access the crags.
