The crack gets wide in areas.

  • Climbing limited to areas below observation deck. MORE INFO >>>
  • Areas on State Game Lands may face full hunting season closure starting in 2015 - please read and respond MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Begin by climbing an offwidth crack to a sloping ledge. Either make a small traverse left and up over a small overhang to another sloping ledge (5.8), or as a variation follow the crack straight up and over the overhang to the ledge (5.10a). From here move onto the face and up to an overhanging block at the top.


    Number 5 in order from the left(north) to right(south) end of the crag, as it appears facing the rock from the base.


    Top rope or pro to 4 inch.

    I wanted to do this climb, but couldn't find good anchor points to set a TR up from. It is just to the right of the observation deck while facing the rock.

    Setting a TR anchor for this route can be tricky. As you well know, the tree line sets back quite a ways from the top of this route. In order to set an anchor here, you can either:

    Use close to 60' of webbing to extend an anchor from the treeline above or

    Use traditional protection to build an anchor closer to the edge.

    The last time I climbed the route I used the first option. You may even be able to find a small boulder up top somewhere to sling for an anchor. It's a very fun route though and worth the effort or setting a TR anchor.
    Good luck!
