Description

A great spring/summer crag with good climbing and a great view of a even better crag, Endless Wall. Stays dry in the rain and has some amazing lines!

Getting There

From the parking lot the easiest approach is to walk back the way you drove in and take a left on the first trail that goes down the hill. Follow this trail down to the wooden stairs. After walking down the stairs the fast way is to take the first left down the drainage gulley. This will drop you off at first buttress. There are a handful of amazing lines here too!

Follow first buttress climber's right and follow the trail until you get to the old mining stairs. From here head down the stairs and then break off left, (climber's right). The next crag you come too is Rico! Have fun!!

Someone should add coal miners tale to this page. Ive done it and remember it but I forgot how many bolts and the grade. It is a fun variation to the top of rico though. I remember going up rico and then traversing out that lip to some anchors about 5 bolts. Pretty exciting. Aug 27, 2017
If you hit the 800 stairs you've gone WAY too far. Jul 11, 2017
