Description

The Armory is sufficiently distinct from the other crags at Tunnel Six to warrant this separate listing. It is located just off the stream and directly across from the tunnel. There are really five distinct crags in the area with routes on them: Nomad's Cave is furthest west followed by, The Primo Wall, The Crystal Tower, The Armory, and a newly developed crag significantly uphill from the Armory called The Conspiracy Crag. The crags close to the water are separated from each other by clear drainages that define the crags. Presently there is a tyrolean strung directly to the Armory that serves for all of the crags in this local. There are half a dozen routes at the Armory, most bolted, and most are largely difficult- 5.11+ or harder. There is also a burly trad line here as well.

Getting There

Whatever approach you use to get to Primo or the Crystal Tower will work. The tyrolean is located 100 yards east of the parking.
