BETA PHOTO: Deadwood Crag, Big Cottonwood Canyon CC - Custer...


The Deadwood Crag is just before the Glass Ocean Wall and shares similar characteristics with it. The crag has been cleanup but could use some more hold cleaning.

There is one set of anchors at the top of Custer's Cutoff which can easily be rapped with a 50m rope. From the top of Deadwood one can walk south and up the ledges and arrive near the base of Glass Ocean.
