Area Descriptions 

This is a beautiful area frequented by hikers and climbers. Many routes are in the shade at various times of the day. The nearby flowing water also cools the area. All the fixed anchors are relatively new and of high quality. Routes are clustered in 3 distinct areas.

Lisa Falls Buttress

These slabs are particularly well-suited to beginner climbers or those just looking for a casual jaunt up the rock while being surrounded by the beauty of trees and a nearby waterfall. The routes here are among the easiest on the difficulty scale. Beginner climbers are cautioned to pay close attention to the protection rating for individual routes, as a few are runout.

Lisa Falls West

This wall has sport routes on it that face northwest and are all shady in the morning.

Freedom Wall

3rd Class scrambling is required left of the waterfall to approach this area. It will not faze most climbers. Exercise care, particularly during periods of high water flow.
This wall is steep and features cracks and holds that continuously diagonal right/up. The wall faces east and is located in a relatively narrow slot that remains shady for most of the day.

This is the bolted line just left of the waterfall. Usually dry by april. Because of the water running on this climb 5-6 months out of the year, it is deceptively smooth down low. Start on the rightward angling ramp, clip the bolt and figure out the tricky sequence. No, don't hold onto the bolt. Once you have gotten past the first bolt, continue up past the step on the face to the steep section. Take a breather. Sidestep onto the upper face, and now commence to "sweep left".
