Moderate, low angle slab. Well protected sport. Ranging from 5.5-8.

You can climb everything here with a 60 m rope and 11 quick draws.

Getting There 

the trail from the green gate parallels the crag for a bit and then approaches it perpendicular. when the mtb trail turns right and continues to parallel the crag go straight instead of right to find the trail to Cal-Trans wall. Goes up through bushes to the wall, veering slightly left toward the highway. Meets wall then routes appear as it continues left. fun low angle slab 5.5-5.8. You can actually link one of these routes to the multipitch routes above. Not sure which one though.

Climbing Season
