Description

South Clear is probably the most popular place to climb at the Obed. This includes the Image Wall, Solstice Cave, the Stephen King Library, and the Balcony. It gets pretty hot during the summer, which means that winter is the perfect time to climb here!

Getting There

Park at the parking lot off of Doc Howard Rd., and take the trail at the back of the lot. Follow the obvious trail for about 15 minutes before you descend on an obvious steep trail. Stay to the left and you will be at the image wall.

Believe I left a pair of blue La Sportiva approach shoes somewhere along South Clear - if anyone finds them a PM would be most appreciated. Gracias! Mar 30, 2017
