I've only really climbed the REAL obvious face of Chickies, where the picnic table sits. Is there any BETTER spot, as in more natural, harder than that quarrier poor excuse for climbable rock.

I've been told to try the overhanging "second pitch", but I've never got around to it.

Also I've been told that there are some 9s and 10s to the left of the bouldering wall which are nicely TRed.

Anywhere else? Any other bouldered besides the cave?

Thanx and God Bless
Randy

if you go really far left (when you enter from the bottom, its the first bit of rock you see thats on the path) anyways, you'll see a chimney/crack and a spire of sorts that, if you go left around it turns from flat along the cave's wall to perpendicualr with the hill behind the rocks, anyways this area is very underused and has some great lines around it that seem neglected by the picnicking masses. its has a few decent bouldering traverse options and a number of top-roping spots
