Warning Access Issue: SOUTH SIDE CRAGS ARE CLOSED DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

This is a great area for routes of all grades, many being fairly moderate. This area is becoming increasingly popular and there are many developed lines that are not described in the Williams Guide.

In general, this area goes into the shade in the early afternoon, however, when the leaves are on the trees, most of the routes stay fairly shaded for the entire day.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the Propp's Ridge Road approach for all of the South Side Meadow Crags. At the point where you turn left on to the railroad grade continue for .3 miles to a campsite area on the right. Continue down the road for another .5 miles and park at the 2nd logging road that heads up left. You'll have to drive through 2 large puddles. There are several places to park here, just keep your vehicle off the road and try to park in a manner that maximizes parking for others. Follow the approach trail for a few minutes to reach the cliff. The approach trail puts you at the base of Arresting Start to a Noble Finish, 5.12c on the White Wall.

This area is also easily approached from Area 51 by walking along a faint trail for about 10 minutes.
