Some very nice moves on the steep West Face route ...

Trails are closed from sunset to 6:00 am. MORE INFO >>>


A short route but very fun. It is slightly overhanging with good holds to pull on. Definitely worth doing.


This route is on the smaller northwest face of Mt. Doom. Walk right of the top of the crag through a narrow corridor and through some bushes to access the base of the route. No lead bolts on this face and not much for natural pro.
