This south-facing crag is fairly exposed and get's lots of sun almost all day long, although it does overlook a valley that tends to get cool breezes off Big Bear Lake. The few times I have been here I have been the only party climbing. Also you can climb all the routes here in a couple of hours so if you don't have a lot of time and you have a rugged vehicle this crag is definitely worth a look.

Getting There 

Getting there is half the fun. Take hwy 18 along the north shore of Big Bear Lake. In the small town of Fawnskin (if you blink twice it is gone) you will see a small sign that says Rim of the World Dr. take this north (the beginning of the road is paved and starts right at the fire station) once you hit dirt follow for about 1/3 of a mile till you come to 3N14. Follow 3N14 for 2 miles (early in the season there can be 2-3 creek crossings with water up to 2 feet deep) This road is definitely not sedan friendly so be careful (you don't necessarily need a 4x4 but it would be nice) you will crest on a small hill where you can turn left (3N14C or right un marked) turn right you will see a gate on the right side of the road take this for less then a 1/10 of a mile and you will see 2N68 on your right (if you start heading down and around you went to far) turn onto 2N68 in about 100 feet you will see a nice pine needle covered parking area park here. Drive time to here about 20 minutes from Hwy 18.

Once you get to the parking lot look for the hill, on the other side of the road (south), with a few boulders on top and a dead pine tree that has fallen over. The top of the first formation is on top of that hill. The second formation is directly below it. The total time from car to crag is less then 5 minutes.

Climb an easy ramp to vertical face just left of a prominent left-arching crack system for two bolts and then cross the crack to a prominent chickenhead and the 3rd bolt (use a long draw on this bolt and then flip the rope over the chickenhead). Stand up on a narrow ledge, clip the last bolt and make the engaging and height dependant crux moves as you reach from a lefthand undercling to a distant but good edge at the lip - afterwards a quick mantle gains the anchors. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California

The "getting there" description is a little off. From Rim of the world drive, you need to turn left on 2n13. Stay on this road till you hit the crag. The other problem is that 2n13 is closed from both sides for at least another season because of a fire a couple years ago. Biologists are letting the area recover, so no access. I was warned that my car was in danger of getting towed if I parked at the gate and walked the about 2 miles in.

Scott, Patrick, Bryn, Connor, Stefan and myself walked there today, along 2N13, then 2N80, then Snowslide. Wonderful day no-ne around of course.

Very nice area with views of Hanna Rocks, Lake Arrowhead, and Mount Baldy.

Can the drive in be made in a Jetta, or am I hiking in?

I tried to head to the coven a week ago (23 June 2012) and the roads to get there (2N13 and 2N68) had closed, locked gates blocking them. The gate blocking 2N68 had a sign that said closed for winter conditions. Just curious if anyone knows when they are supposed to open these gates.

Follow the Rim of the World Drive from Fawnskin then turn left onto 2N58 follow it south west, the north then back east for a few miles to the Hanna parking, Legoland is a hike across the road and to the south. The Snowslide road is still closed.
