I couldn't narrow down which wall this was with the current MP info. There are several bolted routes with a 30 second approach - on the south side of the canyon ( i believe one of the first crags) and across the road you have more bolted routes. The routes seem to range from 5.7ish to 5.9 and on the north side of the road there are some good 5.8ish routes that run upward along the wall (very tight in the trees) and up a small rock slide area to one or two more difficult routes. Anyway... I broke my ankle due to a loose hold/jug/boulder on the red route in the picture - The jug, (coming out of an out-cropped crack system) was on-route came loose off the wall, tumbling down on me and causing a lead fall of about 10 feet - luckily my belayer dodged the ~40lb boulder... "ROCK!" -- be careful on these routes. Otherwise an overall fun day and amazing place to climb.  kevin
