Description

A nice crag in Central District of SNP.
Possible to top rope, trad or free solo.


If top roping make sure to bring plenty of webbing and/or static cord d/t anchors being a toss up.

For a GREAT resource on climbing this great piece of rock PATC has issued a free online guide

Fortunately, most of the climbing is still open at LSM. It's possible NOC Area and perhaps Dragon Area are affected by the recent changes, but I haven't been there recently to check (my understanding is there's some signage?). The northern boulder areas has been closed for quite some time. I believe there was mention to harden the Chute Trail in the final Rock Outcrop Management Plan that was published. Perhaps things will change after that happens. Jun 22, 2015

Looks like most of Little Stoney Man is now closed, but it's not clear from the diagrams exactly which routes may be open still...
