Cartoon crag is part of The Quartzite Ridge to the south of the road and the creek. It has east and south faces. The south face warms up in the winter but the approach can be slick. This is not Eldo's finest climbing but offers some short easier pitches when under time constraints.
Park at the Fowler Trailhead. Look west, scramble up talus and you are there (east face). Approach time is approximately two minutes.
