Description

Gritscone is a small wall of conglomerate sandstone offering a several less-than vertical face routes, some jug hauls, and a few more tricky overhangs. Great for beginners, the routes are all four bolts or less, and most can be top roped by walking around.

Getting There

Use directions to the Far Side of exit 38, hiking time about 10-15 minutes.

Gritscone is the first climbing area off the right of the trail. A couple minutes past the trail map. If you get to the climbing loop trail, you have gone too far.
