Directions to Velo Crag

RRGCC
This wall is in property owned by RRGCC. Be respectful.
Approach: To get to Velo Crag, first park in the Flat Holler parking lot (see Throwback Crag for directions). Then walk back in the direction you drove in from, and turn right up the old oil road. Continue uphill on the road until it ends, then find the trail to the wall on your left. In two more minutes you should come to the wall underneath On Beyond Velodrome, with itís large hueco about halfway up the wall. Most of the crag faces west to northwest, and gets morning shade. Nothing stays dry in more than a light rain. Velo Pinnacles: To get to routes one and two, look for a rough trail that cuts down left and away from the wall in the vicinity of Ultegra. Contour around the pinnacles until you go right and squeeze through a small gap in the rock. Scramble through a few more squeezes between boulders until you find the bolts of Lighting Rod Arete. Old People Are Awesome is around the corner and to the left, in the big chimney where the two pinnacles touch.

Thanks to Dan for getting the info compiled. I don't even remember how long ago we bolted here. Fun cliff with more potential. Even has its own smoke/ohm cave.

The directions make it sound like you walk back to the main road then look for a road on your right. That is not the case. Turn right (uphill) immediately after you walk out the entrance to Flat Holler parking lot. This is the oil road you turned left on to get into the parking lot. The climbs are great!
