Description

The Box is mostly concentrated with hard climbs, but there are some easy climbs in the area.   Not listed on MP or the SuperTopo book.  See old Mike Craville guide books. 

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.
-There are tags on the trees but I'm not sure if this is to indicate property boundaries or something else.

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.
