Description

North facing, jug hauling, blitz-krieg limestone. The Membrane hosts some of AF's finest sport routes, and on most days the crag will have someone on one of them. The Membrane is the perfect crag for busting out of Boulder and jumping on a pump-fest before you even set up the tent. With zero approach, good stone, and a wide range of difficulty to pick from, The Membrane is hard to beat. Warning: these routes are not grid bolted, so be prepared to run for the clips on most routes.
Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details

Getting There

Park at the pull-out 1.0 miles from TCNM. The Membrane is immediately across the stream, behind the trees.

See here for a Google Street View photo of the parking area.

There are multiple bolt lines to anchors above this crag (second pitches). At first I thought they were projects, but they have been there at least two years, and I've never heard them mentioned. Anyone have info on these? Aug 28, 2014

Location on the map was slightly wrong; the location was where cannabis wall is (I fixed that one as well). Membrane is about 200 feet upstream from Cannabis wall. Jul 20, 2014
