The Inner Circle has a super-short approach and is home to a half dozen nice climbs, three of which are amazing 5.12a's through very steep rock. The wall is south-facing but good tree coverage keeps it partially shaded until mid-day. Oh, and a good stick clip should be considered mandatory.
Take the first, obvious trail that splits from the main trail off to the right. Follow this steeply down through a passage of low rock, then continue to contour back around to the right on a less-distinct trail to the Inner Circle. The cutoff is no more than 500 yards from the parking area. Total approach time is about 10 minutes.

These directions including the ones in the guidebook are wrong. The first trail on the right takes you back to the road and driveway that leads to Dale & Marty's campground. The trail to North Clear Creek is the second trail on your right.
