The view of Nathan's Wall from the parking lot. ...
Short, sharp, shock. A good description of the climbing and the walk up to the crag. The climbs are relatively short, but they pack it in and good technique and finger strength are definitely two traits worth having at this cliff.
The climbs are located on several distinct sections along the cliff band. The approach path hits the crag at one of the best walls, but good climbs can be found left and right of this wall.
From the grassy parking area, hike up an old forest road for about 200 yards until possible to turn left and follow a trail up the hillside. Continue up the trail until to hit the wall. The hike should take about 15 mins.

Ascend the easier terrain to the anchor station....[more] Browse More Classics in International

When we visited in July 2011 a number of the hangers were loose and one route Howl was missing its 3rd bolt hanger (not ideal since if you fell from the crux you'll have a very good chance of decking it).
