This area offers stronger climbers with a bit more challenging climbs than the main crags. North facing crag and can sometimes receive a strong bite of wind if climbing the near winter season.

Getting There 

Take Comus Road to the intersection in Stronghold with the Sugarloaf Mountain entrance on right. Instead of turning right into the park (as for the main climbing areas), continue straight ahead on Comus Road a short distance to an intersection with Mount Ephraim Road. Turn right and take Mount Ephraim Road about 2 miles to a small pull-off (only holds two cars) on the right, at the trailhead for North Peaks Trail (towards White Rocks NOT to West View Parking). Follow a blue-blazed trail about 15 minutes uphill to an overlook on the left. Go to North end of the rocks. This overlook is the top of White Rocks.
