Crag off ney springs road with about 5 developed walls. The shade and higher elevation and easy access make it a good destination in the summer. Mostly mixed climbs with a few sport routes. Some of the rock is loose and dirty but there are some quality climbs.

BEWARE: snakes abound in this area. I saw a den of 3 rattlesnakes right under the climbs at stinkwater last time I was there, but they are around. There is also poison oak around the area.

Getting There 

Follow Ney springs road past a moderately rocky section until a pull-out to your right. You probably need 4 wheel drive past this spot. Hike up the road from here past the old stone house foundation and make a right at the pullout with the fallen tree. Through the bushes there is a trail going up the hill. After scrambling up that you should be at the main hiking trail that goes to the falls. Cross over the hiking trail into the big quarry of rocks. Follow the worn path through the rocks and up the hill to the climbing wall.
