Start with a rounded left hand crimp, and a smaller right hand crimp located just above on the sloping rail.

The Description here regarding the location of the Downtown climbs is pretty vague since the "fence" seems to be on the left hand side of the road completely opposite of the crags? Anyways, Park at (or hike to) the right hand (East side) pullout with a Forest Service kiosk with a map and follow the trail to your right to access the downtown area (which is the wall slightly to the right and behind the trees to this kiosk).
