Description

The Sponge is a heavily huecoed, south-facing wall containing one of the area's best routes, [[105865288. It's right off the main trail so audiences are quite common.

Getting There

About 15 minutes downstream, just after the 3rd river crossing bridge, you'll come to the Sponge. It is on the north (right) side of the creek, and has a large alcove with most climbs on the Sponge just to the right of this alcove.

There are new bridges being built. The log bridge with the handrail is gone. You come to the Sponge after the 5th bridge. Aug 9, 2008
