Basalt. A pleasant place to develop crack climbing skills - most routes protect easy, but are short. Can be toproped. Good place to learn to place pro.

Just a suggestion if you're headed this way: bring something you can drape over the often sharp basalt edge for your TR set-ups. I just hang my pack over the edge, and run the rope over it, but some people might prefer a square of carpet.

This place is shady until late in the morning, some routes stay shady past noon.
There's some good fixed gear here and old school stuff that I don't know if I'd trust (read homemade angle-iron bolt hangers). There's also some single bolt anchors that look to be intended for TRing and rapping from. Less than ideal.
