This is a rather undeveloped climbing area. There are no bolts and access is often discouraged by park staff, so climb at your own discretion.
A handful of good climbs exist on the main face as well as a 5.11 crack named Rock Drop
on the south-facing face.
Take the main reservoir road (N Co Rd 23) down the hill past the farthest north dam. Park in the small parking lot on the east side of the road a little ways past the bottom of the hill.
Take the well marked trail west from the parking lot and head north toward the obvious cliff when given the opportunity at the intersection of two trails.
