Description 

This cliff still hosts an amazing variety of grades with steep climbing on in-cut plates. The best part is that almost every line warrants 4 stars! Make sure to checkout Breakfast Burrito, Whip-Stocking and Check Your Grip.

New routes are still being added in the incredible amphitheater at the far right of the crag.

This crag initially named for its instant access. This was before the roads were closed by the oil companies. Regardless of the closure it is still a quick hike from the parking lot.

Getting There 

From the Drive-By/ Bob Marley parking lot follow the road a bit farther and walk up a hill. The crag will sit on the left side of the road.

One of my favorite crags at the RRG. A lot of good routes, classic 10's, 11's, 12's, and reportedly 13's. If you only can make it to a few walls on your visit, then this one should top the list.
