Description

West side area, accessed by a short trail that cuts off to the right just before the main Beacon Rock trail up the cliff starts.
The base routes are new, the upper routes are older, but due to the location they haven't been climbed all that much.

Getting There

Follow the trail from the parking lot towards the main cliff trail. The trail for the West Face cuts of to the right just before the switchbacks to the gate.  Look for cairns as you enter the boulder field.  An upper and lower climber trail cuts directly to the base of the new routes where crude belay platforms have been constructed.  
Lower down on the West Side, Labyrinth (5.8R), can be climbed to access the "Upper West Side" climbs such as Hard Times, Rip City and Lay Lady Lay.  However, the upper dihedrals are plagued with poison oak.
