Shirley on the perfect granite of the Urban Bypass pitch.
Humble list of trip reports from a handful of successful outings. Pretty granite slabs, wet weather, dense shrubbery, access roads that get washed out annually. Cragging but with a strong back-country flavor. A great place! Hopefully will go back for more.
