Koko Box on Gorilla Rock

Dirt road winter closures MORE INFO >>>


Climb the finger crack and stem (dihedral) to a pretty impressive but easily surmountable roof. Some belay anchors at the top and a rappel station off the backside of Gorilla rock complete the circuit.

A yellow (#2, BD) fits nicely in the lip of the roof.


Standard rack.

Great 5.8 at the Spires. A must do for any traddie.

Agreed. Fun climb, and a good one for newer leaders at the grade. Wear pants - the approach can get pretty bush-wacky.
