|My favorite 5.12's are up here. I would highly recommend going if you are getting 12's in a few goes, It sucks to project up here because of long hike(if your a gym rat) but totally worth a few day trips!|

|I absolutely LOVE this piece of stone! Though somewhat slightly chossy, the climbing it creates is a blast. It's a beautiful hike, it's much cooler in the hot summer, and you can't help but have a great time. Get your thug on!!!|

The approach directions are good but I'll add my own comments to maybe help clarify. The distance from the parking to the turnoff is .7 miles by my gps. After crossing through the stream bed you should see a small rope swing. Head uphill from there east on the main trail. A trail leads down and left 1 min after the swing and should be ignored. 2 faker trails appear on the right as the trail flattens out before an excellent looking trail with a small cairn appears on the right before the short downhill section. This is the turnoff. If you continue down the short downhill section you will find a small 2'x2' boulder on the RIGHT not left and directly in the middle of the path that leads upwards and connects with the earlier trail. Either trail is fine as it's only 20 sec apart but the first trail is more traveled. If you hike for longer than 10 min past the swing you've missed both turns. The trail up is very steep but excellent in quality. If you feel like you're on a game trail you are not on the right trail. It's 2 miles one way and 1700' of gain. An hour was exactly right. Once you reach the ridge and get good views of Olympus it's 5-10 more minutes.
The crag itself has been well manicured. Many brand new fixed draws, lots of excellent flat platforms for belaying, and even a community stick clip if you're into that.
The routes are all ridiculously fun, better than af! They are also really soft ratings so you can feel extra strong and have your ego boosted after sending.
