A great place to spend a day or two, or more; The Egg is isolated from the circus in the Winebottle Area but has enough climbs to keep you busy for a few trips. The giant egg-shaped tower has exposed rock almost entirely around the circumference so you can pick your desired sun exposure to suit the temps. There are comfy ledges to hang out on, shade to be found, and the north and west faces have lines that are climbable in the rain. There heaps of climbs in a variety of climbing styles and grades, from 5.7 to 5.12, though most the notable lines are in the 10+/11 range.
Take a right down the first small road about 2 miles past the river. They were doing a lot of construction when I was there so I couldn’t tell you what it would look like today. We also had to try a couple of driveways on the right before finding the correct one that took us over to the rock. Good luck.
