Description Suggest change

Boot Hill is the obvious north-facing cliff above the Prison Camp campground to the southeast. It appears in "Squeezing the Lemmon" on page 135 with a handful of routes developed in 1989 by Doug Lantz and Diane Vetter. More recently (since July 2004), the crag has been adopted and developed by Andy Peter and Steve Kanoza. They have added 29 new routes (5.5 to 5.11), mostly sport and mixed routes with chains or Metolius rap hangers. The rock varies from crumbly to solid - test the holds and watch out for rockfall. The routes are mostly on the north and west faces, so most routes are shady most of the day, but some sunshine can be had in the afternoon. The low elevation and shade should mean comfortable temps for early Spring and late Fall days as well as warm Winter days.

Getting There Suggest change

Park in the southern-most parking area in the Prison Camp Campground. Head up a fire break as far as possible, then follow a cairn-marked trail uphill to the crags. The main branch in the trail will take you to "the Brickyard" area around the bottom of "Branch Breaker", near the center of the available routes.
