Crag features

Beautiful granite wall that rises above the Pines campgrounds.  Many moderate classic climbs ranging from well-protected cracks to runout slabs.  Since this crag is North facing, it is ideal for hot days!  

-------------------------------------------------------

Best time to climb:  April - June (sometimes wet) & September - November

Safety warning: This crag is notorious for rock falls, so check conditions (especially in spring) before attempting climbs

-------------------------------------------------------

Approach notes

10-15 minutes via climber's trails

From the Glacier Point Apron parking lot, take the very large hiker's trail to a small hut.  Stay left briefly and look for a climber's trail up to the right, towards the crag.  The trail isn't very obvious the whole way, so look for the most well traveled terrain and avoid walking through the vegetation.  

Descent: Most routes require raps with 2 ropes
