Description Suggest change

If remote granite slabs are your thing, come here. If hiking for 2-4 hours, and then bushwhacking for another 30-60 minutes is your thing, come here. In it's defense, the slabs are impeccable, the routes are all sport routes (at least the documented routes), the rock is surprisingly clean, the views are magnificent, and the exploration possibilites are endless. The routes climb a series of slabs separated by 5-15 minutes of hiking. Some slabs are unclimbed, otheres have 1-2 routes on them. They tend to face the southwest, and even up this high, they tend to be warm. Bring bail slings as the anchors tend to be 2 bolts with slings and rap rings. The climbs are climbed so seldom that all the slings I encountered were bad.

Getting There Suggest change

Approach from the Big Willow/Little Willow trail (see Big Willow Directions). Find the faint (lol) trail that branches off of the main trail about 1/4 mile before The Guardian. Bushwhack into the cliffs, find your route and climb.
