Just wanted to make a note about the description for this area. Yes the largest or tallest cliffs are to the right of the parking lot if your facing the rocks but the best are for climbing is by far to the left!!!

I've been rappelling and top roping here for some time and just rescently realized that the real adventure begins by going left when facing the rocks.

The Left Side: When leaving the parking lot take the trail over the bridge and go left up the horse trail until you see the rocks. This is the best area to top rope and is difficult to find if you don't turn left immedietly after the bridge. You may also locate this area by taking the trail from the bridge strait up to the rocks and then following the rocks left, when facing the rock. If you take this route you'll pass a few good climbs and come to a small water fall. Continue past the waterfall to the left and just when you think the rocks disappear you'll come upon a cliff face that extends maybe a 1/4 mile that's perfect for top roping. My friends and I just discovered this cliff last weekend and have been rappelling and top roping here for almost 10 years. Anyone who's looking to top rope should go left from the parking lot.

The Right Side: A great place to meet some people and do some rappelling. I recommend visiting the left side if you wish to climb!!! or top rope.

Just wanted everyone to know the cliff to the left is where it's at! Just keep going when you think the cliff ends!!!

See you there,
