Description

The southern most crag of the collection of crags known as "Interstate Park". Headlight Point is the first crag that is encountered as the trail levels off. One side of the crag faces I-90. The other side of the crag is made up of one side of a gully that leads to a huge chockstone called the "Block of Doom".

Getting There

After the gated Exit 38 fire training center road crosses the river, cut right into the woods on a trail that follows the river. After following the trail uphill for approx. 15 minutes (and passing the right turnoff to the Gritscone Boulder), a small dirt turnoff trail to the right will appear. Follow this trail across, slightly down, and back up the ridge to the Interstate Park Crags and Headlight Point. Five minutes before you reach Headlight Point, another dirt trail leading downhill and right will appear that leads to another area called the Gun Show area. Headlight Point is the first or southern most of the Interstate Park Crags that are encountered.

Underneath the "Block of Doom," there's a route directly across from Tunnel of Love that looks like a traverse rout. Does anyone know what it's called/rated? It's not in my guidebook. May 12, 2015

The guide on rakkup by Todd Kutzke and Rob Klein has it as 'Unknown Traverse', 5.10+. The entry ends: " Getting to the first bolt is the crux. Not worth it." Aug 4, 2016
