Description 

Dip Wall is located in a very aesthetic setting. The forest surrounding the wall is one of the most beautiful areas in the RRG.

The climbs, for the most part, are short. The wall itself is ver tall however, and most of the climbs are under massive blank overhangs. Because of this, Dip is one of the most popular rainy day trad crags in the RRG.

Dip has a mostly southern aspect, so it is a good winter time crag. The well travelled easy routes have bolt anchors, so it is ideal for new leaders to play around on relatively short, easy routes with bolt anchors.

I think there is some moderate multi-pitch potential here as well, but up to now it has been mostly untapped.


Getting There 

Drive along FS Rd. 9b until you must cross a concrete ford (DO NOT CROSS IN HIGH WATER!). Park near the ford on either side and hike up the gated FS road on the opposite (east) side. Look for a trail on the left side of the road just before the ford. The trail comes out at the wall between Over the Hedge and Green Eggs.
