|Safe Harbor South
Over eighty bolted single pitch sport routes along an abandoned railroad bed, a bit south of Safe Harbor Dam. Many of these have updated stainless steel hardware since their reopening in 2011, while some include 1980's or earlier vintage bolts and cold shuts.
Approaching from south to north, the climbing sectors reached (in order) are: Blood Sugar Magic, Electric Co., Tenuous Odyssey, Machismo, Super Slab, Autumn Arch, the Righteous and the Wicked, Numero Uno, Train in Vain, and Hydroman.
Eric Hörst's Safe Harbor Climbing website has a few mini-guide to climbing the south areas. The area divisions used here are his.
Reached by walking north and upstream from the new 2011 parking area on Green Hill Road.
