Comments: IMHO, pitch 1 is one of the better 9s on the crag.

Comments: We bushwhacked from the parking area at 9.2 miles. We headed pretty much straight up the slope from the east side of a concrete structure across the river. We did find the mine mentioned here. Working left a little we found a small ridge line that was not very vegetated and headed up then traversed through heavy brush when we got even with the crag. Not sure if we were on private land or not.

Comments: The death block directly below the anchors is gone, but it could use some cleanup as there is some dirt and small stuff still in place. Still a lot of loose stuff above the tree.

Comments: The first tree in the crack is growing behind a large hollow flake. Suggest bypassing this tree and finding a different belay anchor. The next tree (up another 20') "might" be better.
