A popular trad and top-rope crag, also the only crag in the area which officially allows teaching and guided groups.
Many of the routes are polished due to overuse but there are still many excellent lines to climb. An abundance of anchor bolts makes setting top-ropes quick and easy. There are (faint) numbers painted on the base of the cliff to help find routes. The numbers start at the west end of the cliff. Numbers 1 through 22 are west (climbers left) of the stairs. Numbers 23 and above are east (climbers right) of the stairs. Finally, as a south-facing crag the area is climbable throughout most of the year.
Do not wrap trees for top anchors, use the installed bolts. There is no new bolting without permission.
Drive to Rattlesnake Point Conservation Area and park in the upper parking lot. Hike to the nearby lookout and take the stairs down.
