Phantom Spires:

This area is made up of many free standing formations called spires. The spires range in height up to 250 feet tall. After reaching the tops of thetaller spires you experience a breath taking view of the American River Canyon. This area is known for its door knob like hand holds.

Sugarloaf:

This area tends to be for the more experienced climber. Unlike the Phantom Spires and Lover's Leap, there are few features on the rock. The rockat Sugarloaf has frequently been compared to Yosemite for its smooth granite and straight crack climbing. In 1978 Toni Yaniro put up Grand Illusion, the first 5.13, thenthe hardest climb in the world.
