Pop Rocks is an intermediate tech trail with several rock gardens and rock rolls to navigate through. Look for an upper, more advanced line towards the top section of trail. Half way down the trail is a giant rock slab locals refer to as the gnar wall. This trail is a great place to get comfortable on classic Beacon rocks.

Access Info

At the top of the towers head south, look for a small off camber rock roll into rock garden under the power lines.

       Could be a black diamond trail if not for optional lines.

      Super fun to finish on lower part of Blaster and Scared Cat
