This tall, east-facing wall is one of the better crags at NJC and offers several long, sustained moderates as well as some shorter, more difficult ones - all within view of your vehicle. Morning sun and afternoon shade.

The Scene Is Not For Sale (5.10d), Crossfire (5.12a), Double Kneebar Ranch (5.12b/c) and Bad Seed (5.13a/b) are some of the classics to be found here.

Getting There 

Continue along the approach road past Roadside Crag (on your left) and the Boyscout Wall (on your right) to the road's end at a fenced parking area. Crossfire Crag will be to the west and slightly north and is identified as the large east-facing crag facing the parking area.

Approach the crag via a good trail which heads up the hillside from the vicinity of the parking area. Plan on 3-5 minutes for the approach.
