Description 

Palisades creek is a truly wonderful place to visit. The hike alone is amazing. Two climbing sectors exist, about 200 yards apart, The Pines and Weeping Cave. Both areas are comprised of very decent limestone located about 2 miles from the trail head. Beautiful settings, seclusion, and great climbs for intermediate to expert climbers make for an amazing crag!


Getting There 

From Idaho Falls, head east on highway 26 past Swan Valley and Irwin. Turn left on Palisades Creek Road. Follow this road past the campground (about 2 miles) and park at the last parking lot. Hike about 2 miles up the trail that parallels the creek. When you cross the bridge you're about half way (not the bridge at the parking area obviously). The crags are both located on the left side of the trail. Look for smaller trails that leave main trail. The first area is the Pines. The second and larger area is the Weeping Cave. The Weeping Cave trail is more worn and this rock is easier to see from the main trail. The Pines area is harder to see from the trail, but it is located about 200 yards down canyon from the Weeping Cave up a faint trail.

Toys in the Attic 5.12c/d 7c 28 IX E6 6b  ID : Palisades Creek
Amazing route! Starts with a short crux right off the ground, leads to easier climbing and left traversing crack with good holds. Big rest hold, followed by big move and more hard climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
