Description 

This small crag hosts a few quality routes that could benefit from more cleaning. With walls that face West and South, expect a lot of sun. The approach is long, circuitous, and seems a little forgotten. Don't expect to see many crowds, but this is a fun wall when the Allenspur standbys are getting a little tired.

Getting There 

The approach is tough. The most direct approach follows the old trail, which leaves from the north end of the fishing access. Follow switchbacks until the trail tracks south, and then locate yourself above the Main Wall. Walk until you see the obvious crag with cleaner looking rock.

The walls can be approached from the new access as well. Walk to the Borderline crag, and continue past the Main Wall. Wrap around the main wall until you can link up with the old trails mentioned above. This might save time.

Scrambling up between the Main Wall and Borderline is a mess - lots of loose scree and dirt that will rain down on other climbs. Be very careful if you choose to do so. It's easy to get lost, and tracking too far south will have you raining blocks down on climbs like Rancho Deluxe or Flake Fest.

As of 2016, this crag could use a better approach trail.
