Almost done


Short fun route that's a great warm-up or a great first lead. Crux is towards the top between the third and fourth bolt.


Scramble up the boulders behind Dreamscape or scramble down from the campsites. In the area known as "The Whipping Post."


4 bolts, open shuts

This is a fun lead; too bad it's so short and such a pain in the ass to get to.

There is a route to the left of Lichen This that Johnny recently bolted.It is named Tarzan. Another reason to visit the area.

This route has been stripped of bolts and anchors by persons unknown. It can still be top-roped if you put the effort into getting there. Trad otherwise until someone re-bolts.
