About South Face:

The South Face offers several classic moderates with a relatively short approach. That said, it is often crowded on weekends. An early start is recommended. With it's sun-drenched, southern exposure this wall should be avoided during hot weather. To find the South Face, take the first right past the fish hatchery. After about a mile look for a curve w/ large pullouts on both sides. The trail starts up steps on your right. The first and last 100 yards are steep. The rest is moderately uphill. Several of the routes have anchors at the top of the first pitch and some routes are just a short single pitch, so toproping is fairly common place. If you do toprope P1 of multi-pitch climbs, please allow parties aiming for the top to climb through.
