Description

A long, south-facing shelf of rock that's the main wall at Lava Point. The right side (reached first by the trail) is known as "Deadheads." The continuation (starting off a narrow ledge system) is known as the "Lava Wall." The wall gets progressively taller and steeper as you move to the left.

Use caution on the ledge system. Belay bolts are in place at the base of some routes.

Getting There

From the left side of the parking area, follow a well-worn track left (south) through open woods and meadows. The trail drops to the east end of the wall, in the "Deadheads" area. 10-minute approach at most.
