This sector is the combination on two crags: east-facing Shortcut Cliff and west-facing Behemoth. Shortcut sports a few gear-protected cracks, but as it stands it's far from a destination spot. However, Behemoth has decent potential. So far there's a few quality routes in the 5.10-5.11 range, but that number could grow in the future. This cliff is close enough to Shortcut and the top end of Foreplay that a combination of crags is a reasonable plan.
Shortcut Cliff faces west and gets afternoon sun with no tree shade. Behemoth faces east and uphill, so it's in the sun in the morning.
From the south end of Evergreen Drive, hike around the yellow gate on the left and quickly turn right to hike around a second yellow gate. Watch for a trail that breaks left and dips down beside a small pond. Follow this trail (Brian's Canoe Trail) southward through a brushy canyon until it merges with a dirt road. Walk uphill to a four-way road intersection and pick up another road on the far side thatr continues uphill to the southwest. At the crest of the hill, take a trail on the left and follow it uphill to Shortcut Cliff. To reach Behemoth, break right on a faint trail, which drops downhill along the cliffbase. These crags can also be reached via the Chatsworth approach, but it;s considerably longer.
