Many climbing areas are closed along highways 50 and 88 as the fast moving Caldor Fire spreads (as of Aug 30, 2021). Read the Mountain Project forum discussion above, and the Cal Fire incidents map here fire.ca.gov/incidents/ for latest map and information. Be safe mountain neighbors!
A concentrated crag with some nearby obscurities.
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.
