Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

The Winter Warmer area (aka The Fence Area) of North Table Mountain comprises roughly the domain from [The Solar Panel]] to Winter Warmer or a route or two left of this. It is identified as the tallest stretch of rock on North Table Mountain. It is directly West facing and so becomes an ideal spot for an evening climb. The hardest route on the hill is in this area (Solar Panel), and several other classics are here as well. The rock is largely typical of North Table Mountain basalt and the routes end well before the crag turns chossy, which it does in the upper 60 - 70 feet.

There is also a 2 pitch combo here, Basalt and Battery to Insult and Flattery.

Getting There

Hike around the hill. When you get the broken fence running up to the crag, look for the tallest sector of North Table Mountain. You have arrived.
