DescriptionThis is the huge wall just left of the Freezer Burn Wall that is separated from that wall by a deep and fairly wide chimney that narrows towards the back. Routes are found on the outer portion of the buttress as well as in the depths of the chimney.
Classics here include Being There (5.7) and Dancing In The Storm (5.10b) with Wicked Good Chode (5.10a) and F.S.T.D. (5.11c) being worthy of mention.
Williamson Rock is currently closed to climbing. Details
Williamson Rock is under a temporary closure to all recreational uses, including climbing, pursuant to a ruling by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that the area is critical habitat for the endangered yellow-legged mountain frog. Efforts by the non-profit organization Friends of Williamson Rock, in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service, are underway to regain climbing access to Williamson. For information on the status of these efforts, and to learn how you can help, contact the Friends of Williamson Rock: williamsonrock.org Per the Access Fund's update, in 2017 the Forest Service hopes to begin an environmental study of the impact of allowing limited climbing to resume. In the meantime, the Forest Service supervisor has extended the closure until January, 2017.
Getting ThereApproach as for the Freezer Burn Wall, and continue past it, making a short scramble, to reach the base of the formation.
