Ratings here seem a little soft, but not too bad. Climbs often have good stances for placing pro. Jun 18, 2008

Fun area with great rock. It seems to better in the early morning and afternoon (after 2p); the sun is pretty intense this time of year - probably stellar in the winter. All but one of the climbs are really short; around 50 feet. The trail to the base is difficult to see, but getting to the are from the top is easy. A 30-35m gym rope will suffice if you don't want to carry the extra weight, especially if you are soloing. Aug 15, 2015

Karl, maybe the routes in the lower grades could be considered soft, but most of the harder routes are right on to a bit old school. There's a definite style to sugarite basalt, and leading even on the short cliffs can stil check your head. I always use alot of passive pro here. One could probably find some trad FAs if you took some tri cams and ballnuts. Nov 20, 2016

I love this place. Some of my favorite sayings are "Pete up till I sheet up" and "In the spirit of Pete" followed by a Japanese bow. Sorry if thats offensive. Seriously, Pete, if you ever come back let me know. We've started a cult following and we need a leader:) May 2, 2018
