Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures January 1- July 31st Details

Description

Cove Rock holds one of the best fingercracks in the canyon. This crag contains up to seven routes all of which are 5.11 or harder. It is a west facing crag with easy access. Worth a trip if you want to tick the classic Breakfast in America finger crack.

Getting There

Travel 8.1 miles down the canyon from the entrance. Look across the river for a crag with an obvious y-shaped finger crack in the middle. This is Cove Rock. You can turn right across a bridge into a picnic area and park somewhere in here. Sometimes the gate is closed and you park at the gate and walk in. Walk along the north end of the stream to the east until you hit Cove Rock

Was there 10/2/10 and noticed two bolted lines left of Breakfast in America. Both were quite challenging on somewhat rotten rock. One went up a roof/corner system littered with bird nests, starting atop the largest boulder at the base of Cove Rock. The other began about 20 feet to the left, with the first bolt perhaps 30 feet off the deck.

Anyone know what these are? Oct 3, 2010
