Getting There Suggest change

Park nearest Entrance Crags loops or the northwest most available space. Hike in starting on the old OHV road aka Pipeline Road. A few minutes brings one at the north/right veer into Crichton Crag and the West-Bound Crags (continuing up the hill is another area - Pipeline Pass.

Still parking in the nw area, alternatively, hike in northbound following the wide clear, paths, then after the mound veer left/west toward the wash. Taking this way drops one off at Runway Wash area. 

Uphill hiking is guaranteed, though may be short lived. 30 minutes or less to any route (typically 15 minutes).
