Description

Expect trad climbing. Great cracks of all difficulties from 5.6 to 5.12. Big House and Becker are good mellow routes. Check out the routes to the left in the corridor for good 5.10 - 5.11cracks. The OW that you see is Burning Man-5.11, good fist stacks to a couple of easy roofs. Next finger to hands crack is Yellow Belly-5.10C, good climg to cold shuts, beyond from ledge is 5.9 OW. Around the corner on the prow is a fun 5.10d that goes out a couple bulges.

Location

Per Petsfed: Starting from the Blair Picnic Ground, head north on Blair-Wallis Road to FSR 707. Follow 707 east to 707A and hang a right. After a little while, hang another right on 707AF. Follow that road to a parking area that's popular with gun- and Coors-enthusiasts. Park here and walk south towards the formation. Little John's Tower is off to the west of John's Tower proper.
