Description 

These climbs are located on the lowest tier of the Harrison Bluffs directly adjacent to the point at which the trail from the powerline road reaches the crag. The climbs tend to be single pitch vcrack and arete routes although there are a few slabs and two pitch climbs. Can be damp in early spring.

Getting There 

The shortest approach of any of the areas at Harrison Bluffs. One minute from the powerline.

Sleeping Princess is the right-hand crack at the two cracks at the bottom of the bluffs! It is a nice solid granite crack and is easy to protect, the crux is at the last 10ft of the climb where the dihedral peeters out. This is a good warm-up climb and is much easier than the Left-Crack....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
