Description

This crag was developed in 2009 by Damien McCombs, Brock Wilson, and Jeremy Frimer. It is a short walk from the campground, and features a base area with a handful of cragging routes - and the multipitch route Wiretap (10a). It faces NW, and the first 30m is heavily shaded by trees.

It is sure to become popular.....

A crag topo is available at:

Getting There

Start up the stairs on the backside trail up the Chief. After a few minutes, hang a right on the Shannon Falls trail and cross the creek. Look for a new trail (flagged in 2010) heading steeply up and left about 20m from the creek. Follow this trail to the base of the wall.
