Description

Most developed section of Crane Mountain's Summit cliffs. The bottom lies tucked in dense conifer growth, once above this, the south-facing aspect gives this plenty of sunshine.
Though the rock is clean enough for the moderate routes, this is much like alpine character climbing. Check holds and bring a wire brush. A few of the routes have been scrubbed a bit.
Climbs range from 30' to a bit over 100' tall.
Rock is coarse-grained granitic gneiss.
This area is the second-most popular crag on the summit (first being the Prows, right of the Ladder), but still sees very little traffic.

Getting There

Walk west of the actual summit for about 200 yards. At a point where the trail goes beside a ridge at the top of a 20' cliff with a small camping "nook" among conifers below, this is the Firecamp area. There is a rappel anchor on the (skier's) left side of the main wall. A 60m rope will reach the base of the cliff near Thank You, Cindy's start.
