Description

This short approach, easy routes (5.4-5.9), and setting makes this a popular area both for climbing and spectating. And with only about six routes, get here early to avoid waiting to get on the rock.

The rock is the standard metamorphic rock found in this region. The cliff is right off the old railroad grade, now a popular trail, and faces north.

 Remember to keep the railroad grade clear so bikers and hikers don'¬ít have to go around your gear.

Getting There

Where the trail from the parking lot connects with the Iron Horse Trail, under 10min from the parking lot, you are lookin at Write-Off Rock.

These routes are very well bolted. I don't consider any of them run-out. Great crag to take some new climbers out to, or if you want to do your first sport lead. Aug 9, 2012

Nice area for beginners, nice seating if people want to spectate. There's even a 5.4 on the far left (Bu Rabbit). Beware climbing past the top of the routes...there are some rather large, loose rocks up there. Great Warm-Up spot if you are heading to Nevermind Wall up the road.

And keep your gear clear of the path. Bikes zip through that area pretty often. Mar 4, 2015
