Really fun 5.8 with an easy roof type move in it.


Climb the short slabby start to pull through a reachy but short juggy plate section. Continue past the 6 bolts to the chains.


2nd route from the right, as you are walking along the trail from the parking lot.


6 bolts to a 2 bolt chain anchor

This route was awesome, completely safe clips, and tons of rests between the massive jugs.

Great climb for beginners, easy jugs with clear flowing movements. Classic

The second bolt is unneeded after you clip the 3rd. It lays on the you of a ledge so you can reach down and ditch it. A few of the bolts are prime for a Zclip. I really like this route, totally doable with a little bit of wet.

A great climb for a new leader. Amazing holds and clipping stances with more than enough bolts

No reason not to stop by this crag and jump on this route! Very fun. Great for new lead climbers, and the area is just beautiful. Be aware that the bolts are closer together than is typical for routes around the Red.
