There is a crag located at the far right hand side of the White Rocks outcrop. Its overall height is approximately thirty-five (35) vertical feet. It is just twenty five (25) yards from the upper parking lot and the road. It features an impresssive North / West facing slightly overhanging arête with some excellent crack and face climbing. It also has a huge block in front of the crag that sports some great bouldering.

Getting There 

From the upper parking lot, walk thru the boulders on the boundary trail and take the trail on the right. This trails gains you access to the Arête Wall Crag. You can follow this trail along the entire base of White Rocks crags.


From the base of the main formation (Jim’s Wall and Pillar #2), follow the trail to the right (south) around Pillar #2 and Calvin’s Slabs, continue until you are almost back to the upper parking lot. This is the last area in the White Rocks formation.

This is a super fun area that is close the parking spot. About 5 moves will get over most boulder problems on the front block.
