Description

New Hipster Rock is a recently developed crag conveniently located just west of Tunnel #1 on the north hillside. Only 40' to 50' tall, this south and east-facing crag features six steep routes on good stone. An obvious dihedral splits the crag in the center with three routes left and three routes right of the dihedral. The crag is named for those of us who've had or are in need of some new body parts.

Getting There

Old: park immediately west of Tunnel #1 on the right (north). This is the same pullout as for The Sports Wall. Looking upstream from the parking pullout, the top of the crag is visible at about 1 o'clock. The approach is pretty obvious. A trail starts directly above the pullout and initially angles slightly right (away from the crag). Follow this bighorn trail for about 120' then hang a left across a gully below the crag, moving slightly past it, before heading up again. The approach takes 5 to 10 minutes.

New: per Adam bloc: park at the new Tunnel One parking lot, and follow the new bike trail West for about 5 minutes around the bend to the other side of the tunnel. Looking upstream from the tunnel, the top of the crag is visible at about 1 o'clock. The approach is pretty obvious. A trail starts directly above the old pullout behind the guardrail and initially angles slightly right (away from the crag). Follow this bighorn trail for about 120', then hang a left across a gully below the crag, moving slightly past it, before heading up again. The approach takes 10 - 15  minutes.
