Description

South Park is certainly a unique crag. You'll find it on the same road as Heise Rock. This concludes the list of similarities.

South Park offers no single-digit routes, and most lines go easier than 12c. Most of the wall overhangs about 6 feet in 90. The stone is broken and sometimes loose, and by all indications will continue to be so until the rapture. This place cannot be treated like a gym. Holds break unexpectedly. Pay attention and communicate with your belayer.

The real essence of South Park climbing is the overwhelming prevalence of open-handed pinches. Climbing here tends to be pumpy more than technical. Think fitness over bouldery cruxes.

Watch out for snakes and falling rock. Do not belay directly under the climber. Do not flake your rope directly under the climber unless you like core shots. Bring your stick clip and have a great time.

The area guidebook is Sweet Spots, by Jerry Painter and Matt TeNgaio. Southpark is not included in the current edition but you should buy it anyways. Seriously.

Getting There

Follow directions to Heise Rock. Continue east past Heise a little less than a mile until you reach a dirt road on the right. Follow this road about 4 miles.
You'll see a large sign saying "Wolf Flats". The wall is .8 miles past this sign.
Please don't park in the little turnout directly across from the wall. Park in the large pullout on the left about 100 yards past.
