From the parking lot, this is the closest trail leading up to a steep crag about 100 feet from the parking area. The routes here range from 5.9 to 5.13 and many are very very very steep. Also, the routes here are shaded by numerous trees and even on a hot day it is relatively sheltered. It also makes for good climbing in the rain because of its steepness.
