Climbed here with the family on vacation two weeks ago. Very fun and beautiful crag. There are perhaps 6+ more routes that are unlisted on the left side of the main wall (4 of those sport & 2 other anchors I could see. trad?). Jun 30, 2016

Great spot close to McCall. We made it out here while vacationing in the area. Quality granite sport climbing. In addition to the routes in the topo picture there are 3 shorter routes to the left of the trad climbs that are also in the 9+ - 10 range. Sep 23, 2015

This is a really fun little crag! Beautiful setting, good rock, and a straightforward trail back to the base, what more could you ask for? Morning shade, afternoon sun. Aug 15, 2015

This may seem obvious to most, but do not try and rap off the bolts that are on top of the rock to the climbers right just the the left of the arete. Your rope WILL get stuck, and you will have to ascend the rope to free them. Sep 25, 2014
