Description Suggest change

Higher Security Risk is just up the hill from Upper Security Risk. Higher is higher than upper. The right side is a nice steep "slab" with a couple of short sport routes that follow thin cracks and flakes. There are a few more sport routes further left. Higher gets a little more sun than Upper.

There have been eagle nesting closures which have limited access to this crag in the Feb. 1 - July 31 timeframe.

L->R:

A. Gimme 3 Steps, 11-, 1p, 60', gear & bolts.
B. Evolution, 11, 1p, 60', bolts.
B1. Cold Shot 11-, 1p, 60', bolts.
C. Turmoil, 11+, 1p, 60', bolts.

Getting There Suggest change

Start as for Happy Hour Crag. After a few minutes, when the Happy Hour trail goes left, continue up a trail, marked with a few cairns, past Lower and Upper Security Risk. Higher Security Risk is about one minute uphill from the left side of Upper Security Risk.
