Middle Elden Canyon Rock Climbing
Lots of potential for bolted and trad routes. Chris Tatum and Jerimiah Gentry put up several routes here.
Obvious canyon seen from town on eastern side of Elden. There are any number of access points to get to the Middle Elden. Basically hike along established trails up into the canyon. Many boulder problems in the lower section as you get higher up look for bolted lines on free standing pillars as you get higher in the canyon. Multiple routes and potential on upper tier as well.
Climbing Season For the Mt. Elden area.
