Sport crag that's ideal for beginners and gym climbers looking for a first day out that's secluded and easy to find. East facing, late afternoon shade.
From the typical parking at the end of the Calico road, cross the wash and head right towards the Monkey Bar Boulder, passing the Plumber's crack boulder after a couple of minutes' hike. Once at Monkey Bars, several trails allow a choice of wash, near the wash, and higher up. Staying out of the wash but near it seems best-you will be entering Gateway Canyon as the walls close in. Walk about three minutes past where you enter Gateway, past a couple of overhanging bolted routes that seem decidedly non-moderate (this is Conundrum Crag). Family Crag faces you squarely and has three bolted routes on it about two minutes off-trail up the hill.
