This area offers the tougher climbing at Cragmont, but it's a very relative tougher. The routes range from 5.9 to 5.11c, and it's probably not the part of Cragmont for beginners. Surrounded by trees, chances are pretty good that you're going to be in the shade most of the day here.
Approach: About a minute. Down an easy trail. From the street, walk downhill on the left side of the park past the bathrooms. The first rock is the northeast face, the second, just around the corner is the east face. The left side of the east face is recognizable because it contains the only bolts on routes. The east face officially ends at the arete, which is just right of some cavy holes 25 feet off the deck.
