Description 

The climbs are on the southeast side of the rock (facing the main road) and get sun until mid to late afternnon. In addition to the fun face climbs, there is some great bouldering in the immediate vicinity, including the classic Ilicit Sweetie Boulder (5.7 - V2), and the notorious Nicole Overhang (V8).


Getting There 

You can easily spot The Crypt from the main road as you drive past Ryan Campground toward Hall of Horrors. Look for an 80 foot high rock pile located about equidistant between the Love Nest and King Dome. It is located about 100 yards east of the Planet X Formation.If you stand in the right spot at the Hall of Horrors parking lot, you can see the formation.

The best approach is from the Hall of Horrors parking lot. Walk west between the first two rock piles (North Horror Rock will be on your left) then follow the trail as it curves around to the right, to the vicinity of the slab with Hemroidic Terror, Casual, Doin' Life, Jaws, etc. Look for a 20 ft. high, solitary boulder off to the left (NW). From the boulder, follow a sandy wash (heading west) that takes you directly out to The Crypt.
