Olduvai Rock

California > Sierra Eastside > Eastern Hills > Benton Crags

Description

Small, South facing crag with a number of routes. Mostly trad, but a few sport routes exist.

Getting There

From the Southern parking area head North along the Western edge of Caiman and Crocodile Rocks, then turn East (right). Work your way through a narrow passage and continue heading East, trending slightly to the left. Olduvai Rock is the first chunk of rock on the North (left) side after one makes the turn past Crocodile Rock. If this all sounds confusing check out the topo picture.
