Description

This is a catchall area encompassing any climbs found in the granite gorge between Post Creek (at the lower end) and Shell Falls/Brindle Falls areas (at the upper end). There aren't many established routes in the main gorge, and access can be the biggest issue since most of the flows tend to be across the creek from Highway 14. Finding breaks in the cliffs or rapping in and leaving a fixed line to jug back out are the only means of accessing the creek. However, since the canyon is so narrow, the creek flows fast and deep and only freezes over in select spots. Basically, it takes some determination and luck to get to some of these flows.
