It does not say it in the guidebook, but be very careful because of bears in the thick trees on the approach to cliff. You are almost guaranteed to see a few and I have repeatedly come within 10 to 20 feet of moms and cubs in this area; each time was quite a surprise. Usually they are cool and wander off.
Don't leave food in the pack and use caution when camping nearby, although I don't think the local bears are Yosemite-caliber thieves yet and able to break into cars.

Very fun place to climb, I've never been on basalt and loved it.
Thought I might let others know about the pack and rope destroying rodents and insane amount of thorn bushes (3 different varieties). Oh yeah and quite a bit of poision ivy out there right now. I've been to alot of different spots all over the country and never have had rodents chew on my stuff. My pack was only in the same spot for like 45 minutes too.
Also heard bears every night I've been there, but have yet to see one.
