This area is a few hundred yards up the road from Luna Park on the east side of the road. Historically there were at least two climbs: Rattle Crack and Cactus Butt (TR). Trees provide a shady belay stance on generally flat ground. The TRs in the center of the crag require a belay from the top to set. Approach these climbs from the right.

Getting There 

The approach is minutes on the road from the Luna Park campground. Simply walk down, from the road, to the obvious taller set of cliffs.

Don't miss some good bouldering near the top of the crag.
