I went out there today and had a pretty good time climbing, but definitely have some input for others who may be interested in this place.
Finding routes is not particularly hard here after you figure out where the overhanging wall is, and see the obvious bolt line of White Out. It should definitely be noted that there are no trails between any of the cliffs, and it is a general pain to move between areas due to the heavy brush and undergrowth. If someone went out here with a machete, wonders could be worked on this place.
This crag is definitely more geared towards people who have been everywhere climbing in the lakes region and are looking for something different. This is definitely not a place for inexperienced climbers looking to try some easier climbs, as there is a good amount of loose rock, lichen, and other crumbly crap. A helmet is pretty much a necessity here, though make your own call. Also there are spiders everywhere.
Ultimately I had fun, and the view from the top is astoundingly good. Parking is free and the hike in is easy. While this crag is definitely not frequented, and has a lot of loose rock, it makes for a good day or half day trip if you're feeling a bit adventurous.
I also have to thank the people that have developed routes here and put them up on this site, that is a lot of hard work and I appreciate it.
