Oneg Shabbat Block Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Google Earth snapshot.
This is a secluded granite crag with an obvious overhanging face, cleaved by a crack. The rock on this block is better than that of the surrounding crags.
There seems to be a lot of potential for new routes.
This crag is 0.4 miles south of Bush League Buttress. The GPS coordinates are very precise.
Approach as if going to Bush League, but continue south along the foot of Bush League's hill until you hit the first stream running W-E. The cliff should be apparent from here. Approach to the southwest of the face, through a corridor and then 150' up the 4th class granite slabs.
Climbing Season For the Wigwam Creek/Lost Creek Wilderness area.
Weather station 4.3 miles from here
