Sunny most of the day. When Phone booth is crowded it is normally got a few great lines open. Some of the climbs here can be super fun and challenging. Nameless Arete 10c is a tough sport climb. A lot of climbs now have bolts and chains at the top for less impact on the trees and natural features. It makes climbing here much safer and quicker. Unfortunately it also brings more people and less experienced climbers, it can get busy on weekends.
Walk the top trail to the end of the first major rock cliff take stair stepped gully down to Phone Booth Buttress then walk past Phone Booth about 150 feet just past narrow stop in trail look for graffiti on rock face and then you are there.
