Comments: WARNING - at the top of the 6th pitch - the very last move of the climb - there is a toaster-sized, unattached rock on the left that looks like the resolution hold. This is about 3 feet below the anchors. For this reason, don't belay at the anchors at the base of the wall. Use the anchors at the top of pitch 5. It doesn't seem safe to trundle the rock, because you cannot see the base of the climb.

Comments: Allen, to get to this rock, you park at the Eastern trailhead. (closest to Drake). You walk up the hill, pass the old mine, and (I think) go past the rock that you bolted. You continue on, and the trail turns right and flattens out into a large, beautiful meadow. The Northwest end of the meadow is demarcated by an obvious, large, rock formation. We cut straight across the meadow. It takes an hour of pretty fast hiking to get to the base of the rock.

Comments: Can anyone give me information on the climbs on the rock that overlooks the meadow on the Crosier Mountain trail? I was up there today, and did two fun 5.9ish mixed trad/bolted climbs. Stellar granite slabs leading to roofs, cracks, and the same bolted anchor. The rock is similar to that of Combat. It appears that there are steep crack lines extending a couple of hundred feet above. Have these been lead?
