BETA PHOTO: The Crag
This is the chunk'o'rock which you saw from the highway and which got you all excited. Most people climb in this area which gets sun for a good part of the day - it is east-south-east facing! The rock is basalt, and in some places you'll want to test holds before you commit to them...
It's a great area to chill and do some short climbs on. There is a picnic table right next to a bunch of rocks arranged in a form that remotely resembles the beginnings (or end) of a house, hence the name.
There are top-rope, sport and trad routes here. Once you get to the top, it is possible to move around and rap-down on a different anchor (you should know what you are doing if you do this!)

: ... : House Wall
Make your merry way to the first bolt and pretend like it's nothing. You'll want to go around the bulge/column, find feet where you can, and holding onto whatever you find. Surprisingly crimpy in the middle section. Once you are past the bulgy/column, take a hard left and go clip into the bolt while standing on a small ledge. From there, go up. Be warned, there is a run-out from the last bolt to the anchor, but nothing too scary....[more] Browse More Classics in International
