Description

Several small crags with bolted routes on slightly overhung edgy rock. Routes are generally in the 5.11 to 5.12- range. It is on the Mt. Persis approach road just before index. Very solid rock, and very well bolted pumpy routes.

There are some boulders right next to the cliff that would likely have some good problems if they were scrubbed.

Getting There

From Highway 2 heading east, go past Goldbar and Zekes. Just after the passing lane ends, look for Forest Service road 62 on the right(a few miles before the Index turn off). The road goes up and left through a gate. Continue up past a gated turnoff on the left (goes to Mine Wall) and a turnoff on the right. Soon thereafter, the road levels out(maybe 3 miles from US 2). Look for a pullout on the right side near a leftward bend in the road and park here. Walk just 50-100 yards further up the road and take the obvious trail on the right side. The trail is an old road, really level and wide. The crag is hidden in the trees a couple hundred yards on the right side down this trail.

Lonely Planet is what Chris Henson refers to this area as and as far as i know he was the main developer of the main wall. Maybe it has a prior history to his development, as far as that, i am unsure May 26, 2014

Dave,
When did it get this name? Is it an alternate name for all of the crags here, or just one of them?

If you have some history about this area, please let us know.

I learned of the crag from RCNW.net, which said it was named after the nearby No Name Creek. May 25, 2014

The short approach "road" is now overgrown with alder and no longer looks like a road at all. The key is to park just where FS 62 levels out and cuts S. Leave your car at the very last spot where you can still see views across the Sky Valley, then walk another 50m along FS 62 to where a trail cuts R across a gravel berm and into a canopy of young alder and blackberry. Nippers or lawn shears can be handy if nobody else has been through lately. Apr 15, 2014

Are the boulders up there worth checking out and developing? How many are there and are they steep/overhanging? Are there any other boulder fields up these logging roads to the south of hwy2 Oct 26, 2006
