Description Suggest change

A great spot for cold weather cragging on a sunny afternoon, the Power Plant Wall faces the Stairs Power Plant and the late day sun. The quartzite here is secluded and varies in quality. On the left, the wall isn't as tall, but the rock is good, on the right, the wall is taller, but a lot more broken too.

Getting There Suggest change

Park in a small gravel pullout after stairs power plant and before turning the corner.
A faint trail leads to a stack of rocks next to a seam in the large green pipe.
Climb over pipe and wind through the trees until you reach a boulder field.
Turn right and head east along a faint trail to a scree slope.
The faint trail heads straight up the scree and turns left west 30 feet before reaching the top of the loose talus.
Traverse west to the base of a boulder and after passing the boulder, diagonal towards the cliffs.
At this point, some scrambling and route-finding across scrappy shale and loose quartzite is required.
Stay close to the cliff on the right for the easiest scrambling.
