Description 

Five sport and mixed routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.10.

The Checkerboard sector is shaded until approximately 2pm.

Getting There 

Disembark and hike straight up the rocky drainage for approximately 15 minutes. The strenuous hike involves a small amount of scrambling but is over soon enough.

Follow the uphill, left branch when the trail forks near the base of the cliff. Gain a slight bit of elevation and wind through a few shrubs, continuing left past the Queen sector. The Checkerboard sector is the comparatively small black and gray low angle cliff.
