DescriptionPriest Draw is a beautiful, grassy plain 50 yards wide that separates sporadic limestone bluffs on each side. Most of the climbing is on the sunny, south facing side of the Draw, and the bluffs are spread out over a 2 mile distance from the beginning of the road.
One of the only free standing boulders, The Triangle Boulder, greets visitors with dead vertical warm-ups and a variety of good eliminates. Behind the Triangle is a nice little wall with several good problems and a plaque commemorating Robert Drysdale, a prolific developer of the area.
A little further down the road is the parking area. Back in the day you could drive the road right up to any of the bluffs in the Draw, but overuse by a variety of user groups eventually led to it's closure and the creation of the parking area around 2002. Camping is not permitted here, but a road forking left just before the parking area leads to a number of good sites.
A handful of walls and roofs, such as Killer Wall, Pottery Wall, White Wall and Puzzle Box, are just a minutes walk from the parking area. Anorexic, Monster and Mars roofs have the longest walks...about 15-20 minutes.
Climbers are by far the biggest user group here now, and so keeping Priest Draw beautiful is largely our responsibility.
