Description 

Mid-Mountain covers climbs between Willow Canyon Circle (~milepost 16) up to the Palisades Ranger Station (milepost 19.4).

This large area has a huge diversity of climbing in cool ponderosa pine forest, offering a great respite from the desert. However, large portions of the forest in this area were burned in the 2004 Aspen Fire. Be on the lookout for falling dead trees and other hazards in burn areas.

Following James DeRoussel's description for the crag, In Lightning will be one of the first routes you encounter. Look for the continuous bolt line that ends about 120' up the crag; it lies immediately to the left of two other bolted lines that have their anchors halfway up. Follow the bolts to the two-bolt anchor. For the second pitch, it is wise to move the belay 40' to the large, flat ledge to the right. The moves to the ledge are unprotected Class 4.
