Description Suggest change

Shultz's Ridge is a great cragging area and home to the classic Moratorium (11b).

Getting There Suggest change

There are two dirt pullouts on the left side of the road just under two miles west of Camp 4. Park at the first one for the Moratorium, and the second one for most other routes. Cross the street and follow generally good trails through the woods to the wall. The Moratorium approach is steeper and longer than guidebooks make it out to be (allow 15-25 minutes of hiking time).
