Rolling Stone Area Rock Climbing
With a couple hand and finger cracks, as well as a strenuous sport route, this rock offers just enough to offset the obscene approach.
Park at the Birches picnic area, about 1.75 miles from the BCC neon sign. Find the restroom building on the picnic grounds. Walk behind it and start climbing the talus slope.
