Description

This cliff overlooks town, and is topped with a wide flat lookout area, complete with flagpole. It has good quality, varied climbing. Many pitches end at treed ledges, offering some shade on hot days. Routes range from 1-5 pitches, with more friction-slab-type climbing on the right side, and steeper crack lines on the left.

Getting There

Hike down the railroad tracks from town, heading towards the UTW. Near the start of the left curve in the tracks, take the footbridge on the right. Hike up the trail, past the large boulder (roughly half-way point), taking a right at the first fork (a T-junction). The next turnoff on the right goes to Private Idaho. Continue up and left to the headwall of the gully, then take the trail going up and right. Lookout Point cliff is now just above you, and Private Idaho just below. At a moderate pace, it takes about 20-25 min.
