Some more awesome routes at the Main Crag, Lower Silvermine.

Getting there: Park at the mountain bikers’ parking lot on the way to the Silvermine Reservoir. Follow the path out the back of the parking lot, head over the jeep track and onto the trail heading up to the right toward the ridge. At the top of the ridge drop down below the rock band and follow the faint trail running west along the base of the rock band. You will pass Jailhouse Rock and Cloud Nine Wall on your way.

We climbed “Chicks Dig It Lank” in the center of the crag: an easy 13. Great for a beginner as it is not vertical at all, yet gives you a good feel for some height!
