Description

A nice area with many problems from V0 to ????? Sunny, shady and right next to the road.

Getting There

Upon entering the Park from the west entrance (Twin River Rd), go to the left and park, then continue north up the road past the gate and almost immediately take the paved road to the left. Follow this back, passing the Heart Boulder and The Egg. After a dip and a rise up a curving hill, you will see a big split boulder on the left with an obvious traversing crack facing you. You have arrived.You can also drive here, but you must go all the way around the lake. The 10-15 minute walk is easy and a lot of classic problems are on the way.

A couple of my favorite climbs at this area are inside the split, shooting out the overhanging wall, one on each side of the tree. Pulling the top out mantles without touching the back wall can be tricky if you are pumped. Big moves on big holds. I have never heard of names being given to them. Joe?

Edit- I found the info in Baird's notes - Dave's Crank and the Lost Problem. Nov 11, 2011

Great area for V0 through V5/6. A lot of short problems but some clever slabs hidden in there among the obvious classics. Apr 16, 2010
