Description

A concentrated crag with some nearby obscurities.  

Getting There

From the parking lot head southwest under the power lines. You'll soon notice houses on your right - be sure to stay far left and away from backyards.

After passing a few backyards on your right, follow the steep trail uphill, away from the houses. Pass under the first set of cliffs and up/right you'll see a notch that separates the two tiers of The Box. Scramble up this notch and walk along the ledge to the base.

Approach ~20 minutes.
