Description

Some rocks are covered with lichens, so one should becareful not to disturb the local environment. There a few spots to set up top-rope but typically good anchors are scarce so bring some long slings or webbing. There are many boulder problems waiting to be named. Camping - 8 sites; Fee $5 per night.

Getting There
