Description

 Interstate park has several small crags within a short distance of each other.
The crags feature short to moderate length bolted routes. The area is east facing and at a higher elevation so it makes for a nice venue on hot summer days in early afternoon.

The rock quality appears chossy at times but is more or less quite solid and well traveled. The routes are also rated extremely generously in the entire area. The ratings will be listed as they appear the Bruce guide but count on them being at least a number grade soft.

Getting There

As of Fall 2018 there have been substantial changes to the trail, and the old description is no longer valid.

Stay on the main hiking trial trail leading to Gritscone, Gunshow etc, and continue past to the left of Gritscone for another 5 minutes or so. There will be a fork in the trail with fence posts marking two directions. Take the right fork. Continue down this trail for another 10 minutes past a small talus field and a short uphill section until you reach an obvious small bolted cliff section, this being Headlight Point.
