Comments: FYI If you park in the Horse Flats campground an Adventure Pass IS NOT VALID. It is valid if you park in the day use area up the road or just outside the entrance gate to the campgrounds.

If you park in a campsite the rangers assume you plan on staying there so they expect you to pay. 12 bucks is totally worth it to climb such an amazing spot.

I always urge anyone to pay the fee. Its only twelve bucks and it giv... more >>

Also, dont even bother bringing cams up for belay. The large horn at the cave entrance bomber! Especially compared to cams in in loose sandstone and plus a 20 foot sling is m... more >>

Comments: This is a great sport route. A bit after the last bolt it felt like class three so putting pro in would help ease the mind but it isn't necessary.
