Drive By on an October Monday
This cliff still hosts an amazing variety of grades with steep climbing on in-cut plates. The best part is that almost every line warrants 4 stars! Make sure to checkout Breakfast Burrito, Whip-Stocking and Check Your Grip.
New routes are still being added in the incredible amphitheater at the far right of the crag.

One of my favorite crags at the RRG. A lot of good routes, classic 10's, 11's, 12's, and reportedly 13's. If you only can make it to a few walls on your visit, then this one should top the list.
