The Boneyard is a great mid-mountain destination to escape the heat of summer. Several quality sport routes can be found here, from 5.9+ to 5.12-. The area shares an approach with the uber popular Ridgeline crag and can be a welcome haven from the crowded gym-like atmosphere that can occur there.
Park on the right pullout at milepost ~18.5 next to a quarry of white rock. Don't get too discouraged when you see 4-6 cars in this area as most of the climbers are likely at Ridgeline. The trail for both areas begins up a steep slope at the upper end of the lot. As you work your way up the drainage wash take care not to slip on polished slabs. The hike reaches a saddle intersection and breaks off to the right and to the left. Take the right trail to the base of the climbs. The approach should take approximately 15 minutes.
