Tunnel Crag Rock Climbing

South facing so it's sunny most of the time. Its right off the highway but its pretty far up so you'll only see a few cars and some motorcycles.
The rock is granite, its pretty solid but wear a helmet and watch for loose stuff.
This is a sport route area with about 30 routes and most are about 2-3 pitches.
From the 210 in La Canada exit Angeles Crest Hwy 2 and head North up towards the mountains. Go about 40 miles up (Past Williamson Rock) and you will drive through 2 tunnels. Park in the first turnout on the left and look up at the crag.
You can also come from the 15. Just exit the 138 and then go through Wrightwood and stay on the 2 and then park just before the tunnels, however this part of the road is closed during the winter.
Climbing Season For the Angeles National Forest area.
Weather station 2.3 miles from here

I'm gonna go up sat. Since there is only 5 routes listed and 30 in the book of many years ago. Are the unlisted routes just old and/or taken down?

There's a new guide book out that has most of the routes in it. There's definitely more than 5 routes up there.

No new routes are listed. Most of the old routes are a serious leads with bad consequences if you fall, due to were the bolts were placed.
