Follow a left leaning crack system up and left avoid the very large ledge. Once under the roof, stay left through a series of crimps to the top. Definitely an easy climb, with a much harder crux. Quality route though, a park favorite!


Center-right on the Rappel Rock. Descend from the picnic area down the steps. Follow the edge of the rock to the right, and you will see Ross Boulder on the left, and Rappel Rock's face on the right.


A large tree serves as the top rope anchor

Bottom half of climb stays dry even after pretty good 1/2hr downpour (dry up to the crux, which had water running off it). Alternate start- the crack off to the right, goes up to the ledge before the crux. It's mossy, but fun.

The left-facing crack for Laid Back (which could be shared by ROTC and hanging in space) has a huge loose portion. No doubt this thing is waiting for someone to crank on it and give them a bad day in return. I wanted to pass the word because even though I put an "X" on it, it doesn't seem like this area gets a lot of attention on here. The hold is real big, easy to grab for and, is a real skull-cracker. A couple gentle taps and you'll see which one I am talking about.
