Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


Neat and Cool is a very popular crag both because it's not a long walk and because it has fun easy trad leads with bolted top anchors.

The 5.5 to 5.8 range here is often too crowded to bother with, but there are great 5.10s and beyond that are often available.

Getting There 

Walk south from the climbers' parking lot until the gravel road forks. Go left, past the outhouses, and follow the curve of the path right. You will pass several crags including Krack Rock and the Smoke Bluff Wall (big roofs). When you have a nice big crag on your left and houses on your right, you've found Neat and Cool.
