Description 

Reese's Pieces is a somewhat disjointed, West-facing rock band sitting high above Camp 5 and the Lincoln Creek 4WD road. It contains about 10 routes (trad, sport, and mixed gear). It is a remote and scenic location with its steep approach and relatively low number of routes filtering out most Independence Pass craggers.

Getting There 

Reese's Pieces has its own approach trail which starts about 100' up the road from Camp Site 5 at some cairns. The trail skirts a small talus field to the left, then it begins to switchback dramatically through the aspen forest to tackle the steep slope. Eventually it opens up at treeline where it meets the larger talus field just below the crag. Plan on 20-30 minutes approach time.
