Description

South facing great for winter climbing on warmer days with sun. In summer better to start in morning and bring bug spray of course. Great collection of climbs from 5.5 to 5.11+. Most routes on the left and middle are accessible from the top so they can be TR'd. To setup TR's on the right side of wall tie into middle anchors and gently traverse right to the next anchors. Sometimes you can downclimb to the ledge other times you might have to go up and over. But highly recommend you tie in at the anchors so as not to slide off.

If leading, beware of multiple ledges to avoid ankle injuries.

You can climb on Diagonals and Sax walls in the winter when it is 40 degrees or higher on a sunny day no wind. Diagonals faces south and Sax faces west. Sax comes into the sun at 12:30pm. It is a little Dutch Oven sheltered from the wind. Enjoy! almost year round....

Some fun climbs on this wall.

One of the routes above the pit, just right of Ramp/Barron, had some confusing anchors at the top.

There were two sets of anchors at the top of the route (#8 maybe?). The outside set was typical of the area: glue-in bolts with chains and rap rings. The inside set had bolts with hangers, one of which was loose.

Both sets showed some wear, and the loose hangar had some rust on it.

Great area! My daughter loved climbing Barron.

I hope to stop in again before mosquito season kicks off. Jun 8, 2013

Old inner bolt hangers are old. I have to take them off someday. Oct 18, 2015
