All climbs are on the east side of the the canyon. That means a.m. shade with p.m. sun. Short easy to moderately hard routes.

Drive into RMP and locate the Koper's/ Ice Caves trail/ Wasteland parking lot on the left, just past the small bridge. Continue for 0.3 mile to the Feline parking lot on the left at the bend in the road. There is room for about 8 cars here. Please park head in only.
