Description Suggest change

The Conspiracy Crag is a recently developed crag with 15 or so sport routes presently established. The rock is very similar to Primo in being largely excellent, bullet-proof stone, however, there remains some surface exfoliation and scaling that will improve with more climbing traffic. The climbing is all under 100 feet, so a 60 meter rope will suffice for everything. Difficulty runs from 5.10 through middle 5.12 with some potential for hard cave routes yet to be developed. For simplicity, I'll start numbering from the left side, sweeping right to a two pitch line, #7. The main features of the crag face due East, so this will not be a good winter spot. In the summer, the high position and Eastern exposure can provide welcome respite from the heat.

Getting There Suggest change

Getting to The Conspiracy Crag is something of a task. From Primo Wall, hike East past The Armory. After a short while, a cairned "trail" takes off [North] (per John RB), up the hill. The main crag will be obvious on the hillside. The slope is fairly unconsolidated, and it took us the better part of 20 minutes carrying regular packs and ropes to hike up here.

It's probably ~500 vertical feet above the creek.
