How far of a hike is this from the bridge? And where is the best place to cross the creek, I'm tryin to get to the River Wall, but the creek would have swept my azz away today. It may just be a bad time for this area due to snow melt, rain, and run-off. Feb 4, 2013

After heavy rainfall crag will be very difficult to access due to deep waters. Take the time to walk to River Wall and venture down to the water, its beautiful during the spring. Mar 25, 2015

Please take a moment to clean up your tick marks. This area seems worse than others at the obed. Mar 10, 2016

This was my second-favorite crag at the Obed. I was disappointed to find "no trespassing" signs at the creek crossing last weekend (4.21.18). Can anyone shed light on the recent access issues? I'm assuming it applies to the swimming hole as well? Apr 23, 2018

Also saw the Private Property Signs in May 2018 & now I am seeing the notice here. Does anyone have details about the closure? This is a really classic crag. Jun 13, 2018

Little Clear is currently closed to climbing. The landowners have decided it was in their best interest to restrict climbing, and I believe this decision was based primarily on the failing health of one of the landowners. I have heard that the swimming hole might still be OK to access, as the private property consists of everything upstream of the creek, while Del and Marte own the land on the other side of the creek. However, I have not confirmed this to be true. Jun 18, 2018
