Description Suggest change

The Practice Face is the most popular area at High Rocks due to easy routes and easy access for top ropes. This face is often a mob scene on busy weekends; however, the climbs are quite nice and worth getting up early to beat the crowds.

Please do not use the eroded gully on the north side of the practice face for top rope access. Scramble a bit further north (toward the parking lot) by a tree and use the obvious ledge system.

The routes around the left hand corner of the Practice Face, Orvie Direct and The End Climb (aka Orvie), are described on the a. Descent Trail Area page.

Getting There Suggest change

The Practice Face is the first south-facing cliff face you encounter on the trail.
