A steep, south-west facing cluster of granitic crags with great rock, Nason Ridge has a decent variety of climbs, mostly 5.10 and up.
There are four main areas, listed from left/uphill to right/downhill:
The approach trail takes you to the base of the corner that separates the cave wall and the balcony
The routes are mostly bolted with fixed anchors, but there is at least one moderate trad route.
DO NOT USE DRIVEWAYS OR RESIDENTIAL ROAD FOR ACCESS.
Step into the forest just east of the residential road and continue north, parallel to the road. Sometimes it's a bit overgrown, but persevere and you'll enter some more open woods and pick up a distinct trail that switchbacks up to the crag. Also, access to this area crosses private property, so be considerate, quiet and please keep your dog on a leash. Keep all residential development on your left as you head for the trail.
When you get clear of the forest and above the private residences, continue up and left towards the cliff band on BLM land.
