Description

A popular spot in the South Creek area, it has a concentration of mostly 5.10 routes on the west face of Transformer Rock. The east side of Bumblie Rock makes up the other side of this corridor. The Bumblie Rock side currently has just 2 routes while the Transformer Rock side has around 6.

Getting There

Transformer Corridor is just downstream (east) of Bumblie Rock and can be reached by a trail on either side of Flaming Rock. The most direct trail to the area is to start at the Flaming Rock Trailhead and stay on the west side of Flaming Rock, cross the creek, veer right, and go downstream just past Bumblie Rock, then take a left.

This area has a great selection of mixed routes in the 5.10 range. Only a light rack up to a #1 camalot is needed. The starts of the routes are normally the crux. Sep 20, 2006
