Only a few of the routes have names recorded, so I have listed the lines from left to right Unknown1, Unknown2, etc.
Although they don't have any names some of these routes give good climbing.

|Really a great starting area for kids. 10 minutes on the nose from town. 10 minutes on the nose if you walk normally to the base. Right off the trail. 5.4 TR is easy as pie to set up and you can make 3 variations from there. If your plans go astray (as will happen with young climbers), no big deal, you haven't invested that much and you can go play at all the lakes.|

In the 4th edition print guidebook, this crag with these routes is called
Horseshoe Slabs Right side.
. (there are five other routes not listed here on MP on
. . Horseshoe Slabs Left side, about 35 yards up the hill)
About 0.5 mile / 0.9km gentle walk from Parking (GPS lat long ~ N37.6129 W119.0208) by the N end of Horseshoe Lake.
Toilets at parking, but we did not see any bear-proof food storage containers (as of 2014).
Directions: From the Parking, start south on a wide straight dirt mountain-bike trail following about 50 yards/meters from the west shore of Horseshoe Lake. After about 0.25 mile / 400m cross the first bridge. Trail gets narrower and curvier, more bridges. After another 0.25 mile / 400m, the 7th bridge has some additional curved wood supporting below one side. Just across it on R side is a rock face about 20-30 feet high. Another 20 yards/meters, turn off trail to Right side, and another 20-30 yards/meters to the cliff (GPS lat long ~ N37.6056 W119.0214).
Access to top of cliffs:
