Description

The closest climbing to the parking lot at Blacktail Butte. Hard and slick is the name of the game here, but worth a visit if you can climb 10s-12s.

Getting There

From the parking lot head straight over the sidewalk to the trail. The trail branches right through the woods and up a couple switchbacks. Do not take the trail branching to the left. This heads up a set of stairs to the John Gill boulder traverse and becomes a dead end. (Do not jump the wooden retaining wall at the dead end - this is a restoration area.) Once at the base of the wall, you can continue up right along a switchback to gain access to the top of the cliff (if you're looking to TR)
