This place is awesome - excpet that it is really polished and chalked up, it is definatley a popular climbing area. But steep and overhanging and a lot of fun. Another plus is that there is no aproach, you park your car, flake your rope, and begin to climb/belay.
Amazing rock and magnificent caves!! I just need to get stronger to get to really try the classics here
Not a great amount under 7a, but once you're above this threshold, the climbing is phenomenal. Must be the highest concentration of classic 7c+-8b's in the country. Camping is picturesque if a bit pricey, you can fish for trout and there's always somewhere in the shade. What's not to like?
