This is a small area with BIG potential for Top Rope and Trad climbing. Routes start in canyon with flowing creek and small waterfall. There is a larger tree on your left side if your facing the "Heart Rock" from cliff top (Tree is approx 10-15 ft from cliff). That tree is your Anchor/ Top Rope. Set TR (I used two 15 foot "stretches" of webing around tree to make two seperate "wrap around" anchors) then repell into small canyon.

Getting There 

Take the CA 138 South West past Silverwood Lake for 10-20 min, take a right at Camp Seely entrance, then a quick left past the gates. Follow to 1/4 mile to shoulder parking. Trail is is 10-20 meters from road (Trail heads west). This area is located at "Heart Rock" off the Seely Creek trail (Google it!) just outside a summer/private camp location. Park just past the camp, about 10 meters from the trail. Follow the trail 1/3 of a mile till you are on the cliff with the view of "Heart Rock" (A small water fall with a Heart shaped depression nearby). The area is literaly right below you at this point.
