Description 

Brittle Block has good rock, despite what it looks like (and the name of the boulder) on the other side of the dirt road. There might be another variation of this problem, but there doesn't appear to be much else on the little cliff band. It's right off the dirt road but is pretty secluded considering its location.

Getting There 

Park at the main area, and walk 200 yards down the road. It's on the left and about 50 feet off the road. Reference the map for more details.

Climbing Season
