Cool undercling traverse on pitch 1


Small crag with three routes (one with alternative second pitch). Featured in Bob Gaines "Best Climbs" guide book.

Getting There 

Start on north climbers trail. I split left over the creek early on a trail that soon disappeared. Then scrambled up the slope to more level ground and then walked parallel to the creek until I came to it. Alternatively, and as dictated in the guide book, walk the north trail until you are perpendicular to the crag. Walk over the creek and up the hill to the crag.
