The north-facing crag in the gully to the right of Crag Ranch is stacked with 5.10 to low 5.12 routes, many of which require some gear. The dark rock and mossy sections likely put off a lot of climbers, but don't be fooled. The cracks and face holds are clean—at least on the well-traveled routes—and the climbing is excellent. All-day shade makes for a great escape on hot days.
Climb up the steep gully right of Crag Ranch.
