Description

This little area has some great easy to moderate, well-protected routes.

 From "Lithium Ranger": an 11-bolt, exposed & steep 5.6 - to the wildly varied 13-bolt "Cocoa Tuffs", this area has a lot to offer in the lower fun grades.

A couple of easy top-ropes in the lower 5th class range on the slabs (trad & face) make for easy stuff for youngsters. And a cool bulbous 5.8, as well as steep pocketed face with a short 5.10 crux rounds out the zone.

Getting There

Just up-hill and left of the main Diamondback area. Cut left at the end of the trail down-stream & follow switch-back trail up a talus field.
