Benton Hills


Good moderate trad cragging in a concentrated area with a short & easy approach.


From US 395, about 6 miles south of Mammoth Springs (junction 203 & 395), turn east onto Benton Crossing Road. This will curve around the back side of Crowley Lake.

(Crag location is generally correct for roads/approach purposes, but may not get exactly the correct bumpy bits in/out of the rectangle.) 25 miles along the road, Benton Crags will come in to sight. Turn right onto a dirt road, which will be labelled #03S50 (May, also, be labelled as "Barker Mine Road". Follow this for about 1/2 a mile, then turn left onto another dirt road towards the crag. About half a mile down, there will be a V, keep right (left V goes to Practice Crag). As more Vs appear, trend right-wards towards the crag.
