Description

This south-facing sandstone cliff, shady for summer mornings and sunny for winter afternoons, has nice overhanging bouldery starts. Summer afternoons are a bit hot, while winter mornings are a bit cold, however. Overhung a bit at the top and involving dubious-looking rock sprinkled with Cliff Swallow and Tamias Dorsalis feces, this outcrop has juggy climbing. Avoid lingering under the two death blocks at the far right side of the cliff, especially if you are lowering off the anchors of Simon's Solution. Astrid's Gully to the top is further right, and involves easy boulder moves up slab to ledge and trail.

Getting There

Pass the main Junction Creek parking area, and head uphill to parking/pullout next to large conifer/boulder on right. It is a 7 minute approach: find the trail up to cliff behind the USFS sign. The trail crosses a conglomerate slab and then turns right. If you reach a little boulderfield, you missed the right turn. Go up through the trees to base of slab and up right. Scramble up over step and through the "window" to reach the roof of Chipette Rock. Hike along base to reach Chipmunk Rock.
