|Behind Sweet Rock
This area is amazing...Still tons of untouched rock here...but there are a few climbs and tons of fun boulders to scramble on and explore.
There is a beginners slab with climbs on it to TR looking at the first slab to the east after passing over the barbed wire...These routes are UNKNOWN and are in the 5.4 5.5 range (maybe something harder). Bomber Bolts are located on top of the slab.
This area is best for the evening time when the sun is heading over the horizon. Please add beta and climbs if you have done any in this area.
To get there simply head over past the barbed wire fence directly South of sweet rock, The right side of Sweet Rock. Be careful...getting caught in the barbed wire sucks cause its rusty. Keep heading left where you will see a bolted face. Across the little valley is fun beginner slab. Around the corner from the first bolted face are more bolted climbs.

You can drive directly to the base of Peanut Rock by turning Right onto the dirt road about 125 meters before Sweet Rock. There is a nice litte spot to camp there and there is easy access to the bolted anchors.
