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!)

Make your way towards the hold-less bulch higher to the right. Thankfully you will be clipped in when you make the move, although a fall is unlikely to be pleasant. Once over the bulge, breeze up veering slight right until you make it to the anchor.There are many ways over the bulge. Some talk of finger holes, others of tiny crimps here and there.
