Description

This is a great place for single pitch crack climbs in a concentrated area. The rock here is really rough granite slabs that kind of look like a collection of turkey tail feathers. A lot of climbing can be found on nice southerly aspects which feel great in the cooler temperatures that are common here. There is also a very quick approach and the area is usually climbable during the winter if you have a four-wheel drive vehicle.

There are no sport routes here but there is a good range of climbs. There are lots of easier trad routes all on bomber granite but the down side is that your hands will be feeling it by the end of the day, especially if you don't bring tape. Come here for a nice day away from lots of people with lots of climbs spanning the 5.6-5.13 gambit.
