About Hillbilly Rocks:

Sitting above several old mines, these seldom-visited crags have a number of good climbs with great southern exposure. The routes are short but offer a good alternative on busy weekends.
Approach: Access: Drive 7.1 miles up the canyon to a pullout on the right side of the road at the double-passing lane. Go straight up the steep gully from the pullout. The lower rock, Hillbilly Rock #1, can be reached by hiking up a steep drainage/ravine directly above the parking area for about 5-10 min. The upper rocks, Hillbilly Rocks #2 and #3, are about another 20 minutes up and to the left. However, the best approach to Rocks #2 and #3 is from above, by continuing west past the Solar Dome and then dropping down to the Hillbilly Rock #3. The rocks can be seen from the lower end of the pull-out across from the Inca Stone at mile 7.2. Hillbilly Rock #3 has a distinctive slender pine, with no low branches, right in front of it. Rock #2 is 300 feet down and left (approximately southwest) from Rock #3
