A nice group of 3 crags, each with convenient access. Good single & multipitch routes.

Getting There 

From the kiosk where Dry Creek Road turns to dirt, drive a few hundred yards to a small parking spot on the left, just before the road makes a dramatic left turn. Park here. All 3 crags are visible from the parking area. Cross the road and head to the crag of your choice.
