Directions to Curbside

This wall is in property owned by RRGCC. Be respectful.
Curbside is a very accessible wall bordering the left side of the road on the way to the main Sore Heel Hollow parking area for The Gallery, Volunteer Wall, etc. The trail is located .5 miles from the turnoff onto the road leading to the parking area 50 feet behind an oil pump just before the main road turns sharply to the right and heads downhill to the main parking area. Follow the trail for a couple of minutes to reach the main wall. Most of the routes stay dry in the rain. Routes 1-4 are best accessed by walking back toward the way you drove in until you reach another oil pump on the right side (your left side if you are walking back from the original trail) of the road. You'll see a trail just across from the oil pump. There is often a hornets' nest in the sand just below a big rock next to Wildfire.

The obvious crack that arches up and left in the back of a corridor/wide chimney is called Curbside Distraction.

Curbside is a very average area as far as the quality of the routes goes. If you want a quick burn close to the road, then it is worth a day or so. But otherwise, there are many better crags.

What happened to the steps on the approach? It's a bit dangerous for the ankles now.

best wall at the red!! we should take all out-of-towners here first, that way they may not bring their friends/themselves back

browsing the individual climb comments one would think this crag sucks, it does not, it must have cleaned up a lot. still some isolated brittle holds but good tens and a nice mix.

Most of the crags in the Red sucked a little at first
