The rock has a sandstone quality and the holds are mostly on edges. There have been 2-bolt anchors placed on top of most climbs and it's a short 2nd class scramble to the top of the cliffs to set up top ropes.
The main climbing wall faces south, but there is some climbing potential on the longer west face, although there is quite a bit of vegetation on that wall. Additionally, there are some short steep cliffs that face east that might have some potential for short sport climbs. In addition, there is a short low angle crack on one of the east facing cliffs.
There area some moderately-sized boulders scattered below the base, which hold some potential for steep or overhanging bouldering routes.
There is a small parking area on Chezem Road just below the intersection. You can see the dome-like backside of the climbing area just down the grassy hill from the intersection.
Follow deer trails down hill (~1min) until you reach base of dome-like backside of area. Pass ~50 feet along the base of the dome to east side (downhill side) to short use-trail that heads right and uphill immediately between dome and small trees. Head up use trail (~50 feet) and then work your way down and right seeing main cliff face on your right.
The boulders are located immediately downhill of the main cliff face.
