These three crags sit on the same hillside facing SW. The routes are mostly short (less than 80 feet) trad and mixed routes requiring some natural protection, often toprope-able. The grades range from 5.7-5.11. Although the 15+ possible routes here are not the best in this area, the Green Slab (5.9+) on Buick Rocks 1st Buttress and an unnamed face route (5.10) on Buick Rocks 2nd Buttress are worthwhile climbs. The approach is a short but loose rocky trail up from the pullout.
From the Shelly Cottage turnoff follow County Road 80 about .6 miles, 0.1 miles past the Entryway slabs. Pullout on the left or right and hike up to the right to the crags.
