About South Bubble:

NEW! Routes now described from left to right as you look at the cliff from the road. The slab climbs are below the main climbs.

Go to the smaller of two S. Bubble parking lots on the Park Loop Road. Jog down the stairs, over the stream and downhill. The climber trail up the talus will be faint, on your right about 10 yards after the stream. At the top of the talus trend left to reach the base of the lower slabs. Head more left, then back right to gain the anchors for the climbs on the upper part of the cliff. Bolts and old iron rungs wil let you know you're there.

The lower slab TRs are good for beginners. Gargoyle is not to be missed, especially for the aspiring leader.
