Keyesville crags
A couple top rope routes are found here; off to the right before reaching the restrooms on Keyesville Road.


Granite boulders and small crags are scattered throughout the entire Keyesville Recreation Area. To start, check out Keyesville Road, and all the boulders on the hill sides.

There are some 5.6-5.7 cracks and some tougher friction climbs on a fairly popular crag just off the road. Not too far before reaching the restrooms (about .5 miles), its off on the right. Bolts at the top allow for top roping.

There are also some good climbs accessed from the Hwy 178 Bridge near Bodfish.
