Description 

This is the steeper and more impressive side of Campfire Crag with darker (i.e. better) rock than the south side, but it still has some pretty bad routes on it too - so be warned. Easily reached by a short hike around the east end of the formation, this is the place to go when it's a bit warmer, as it is shady most of the day.

Recommended routes here include the lower portion of Campfire Girl (5.8+), Bonfire (5.11b), Presupposition (5.11d R), Datura (5.12a/b R) and Inferno (5.12c).

Getting There 

Make a right (if driving into Indian Cove) at the intersection just past Pixie Rock and park in any of several spots near the south face of the formation. A 2-3 minute hike around the right side of the south face reaches the north face.

Campfire Crag, although massive and of a good height, tends to have very few high quality routes, as most involve scraping up some grainy nondescript fissure or face climbing on rock akin to baked oatmeal; the exception is the north side of the rock - where the better rock is found.This climb starts off a ledge some 40' up and is usually approached via another climb - Klingon Pizza (5.6), which can be third classed easily as the crux is down low.
