Head east from last parking area. Follow trail up and right to Raven Rocks. You can see two large horizontal lines (shallow cracks) which split the buttress. Routes face west.

Quite possibly the most popular wall for intermediate/beginner climbers at NJC. On a recent weekend from the Crossfire wall we noticed at least 20 people sitting or standing around the base and only ONE person climbing.
