Description Suggest change

Todd Goss and a few friends found this place back in the nineties and put a few stellar routes up. Much to my liking they left a lot still to be done. Due to the short season and long approach if you have to walk from the bottom, not much action has gone on here for a long time. Last year James Huntsman and I put in some stellar lines. This is a winter area with a lot of potential. Once Todd Perkins gets psyched there I'm sure most of the awesome lines will get done. Its in the sun most of the day. Think Paradise Forks!! Lots can be done here in the harder grades, but not much to do under 5.10

Getting There Suggest change

From the south you'll need a high clearance Vehicle with a long easy hike in
From the North you'll need to ask to cross private property with a short hike and rap in

Sun & Shade Suggest change

Routes Mostly Face: South
Sunny Roughly 9am to 3pm during high season
6am
8pm
Details: Sunny pretty much all day. The nature of the columnar basalt tends to shade corners dependent on their aspect. So you may have some shade to climb in, but not much. The left side of the crag goes into the shade before the right side.
