Covers the large mass of Cap Rock as well as smaller satellite crags which lie off the nature trail. Lots of quality crack and face routes from 5.2 to 5.13 all with an easy approach from the car.
Take the road that leads to Key's View and park in the large lot below the south face of Cap Rock. Check the individual crags for more detailed approach information. Plan on 1-10 minutes for the approach depending upon the area.

Looks so good. If Linder is struggling that much, it must be hard. Thanks for forwarding the vid along Adam.
