Area Description

A large and varied rock with most of its routes located on the northeast side. Multi-faceted, this three dimensional crag has some amazing cracks and long, sustained routes. Plenty of lines can be found here and many options exists on the west, east, south and north faces. Shade can be had on any hot summer day. Heavily featured, this area has a high concentration of cracks and mixed lines. Tall, a 70 meter rope is necessary or bring two lines. Quality lines, quality rock!

Found just southwest of the Comp Wall, Bracksiek's Pillar is an excellent all day climbing destination. Routes range from 5.7 to 5.12a and climbing varies from slab to face pulling to finger and hand cracks.

Approach time is about 30 minutes from the Ranch House.
