Description

A long approach, offering unique views of the Icicle River valley and The Enchatments, makes The Mole and The Shrew worthwhile destinations. The rock quality is quite good, but don’t be scared of a little moss on the North Face of the Mole. (After a few more accents that route will be AMAZING!)

Getting There

Park in the alphabet rock parking lot, then cross the bridge and head to Hook Creek Boulder. Pass hook creek boulder on the right and proceed up the drainage on an established trail to Yellow Jacket Tower. At this point take a right to a less traveled trail and head up through an amazingly beautiful boulder field.
