Long slab routes that ascend beautiful granite. Bring plenty of sunscreen as all routes face east, so they don't get shade until mid- to late-afternoon. Consider yourself lucky if you get in 2 pitches of shady climbing.

Routes tend to be sparsely bolted and cruxes are often not well-protected (many routes appear to have been bolted on lead). However, most anchors are equipped with nice rap stations, so if you feel the need to bail, it shouldn't be a problem. This is not a Hardman's area, but it is one that deserves to be taken seriously & thoroughly enjoyed!

Getting There 

Park below the reservoir & take the obvious hiking trail around the lake, heading south/west. It's about 20 minutes from car to crag.

Long, outstanding route, albeit somewhat contrived. You may or may not like this fact, as it forces you to stay on the slab, away from the most enticing features. Then again, when the average pitch length is over 100' on beautiful granite, it's hard to complain.Pitches with grades: 4a, 5a, 5a, 4b, 5a+, 5a+, 5b, 5b, 4c, 6a, 5c.
