Rodent Ravine Rock Climbing
Rodent Ravine has a few crags that are worth the visit - Rodent Rock, The Gopher, and Mouse Slab.
The flood a few years ago seems to have changed the approach. To reach the climbable formations, just hike up the drainage until you hit the first crag, which is Rodent Rock, which has one ok slab route. Gopher Rock is where you want to be. A little scrambling and maybe a few class 4 moves get you there, nothing too serious.
