Description

The trees hide this nearly roadside crag (a short <10 minute hike). It has 8 lines on great rock. It receives excellent afternoon shade in the summer (~2pm...similar to Hood).

It is comfy to climb here after 2pm when the valley is above 100. When it is in the 80's in the valley, you can climb here all day,and you can also climb here in the sun (before noon) when the temps are cool (spring/fall).

Getting There

See approach here: ​Blue Sky Approach Map on Google Maps​​​

Park on the rightside pullout (as you head up the Mt.) a few hundred yards before the Rainbow Subdivision sign. Hike up to the sign on the side of the road and head right at the huge pine tree. Head up the obvious gully that has been cleared of trees by the forest service. Bear right where the mini-gully system first branches, hike through the trees straight up the gully for about a hundred hards...hop a fallen tree and and follow the trail up the hill (turning left) about 50 feet past the fallen tree.  Follow the trail to the base of the cliff.

You will arrive at the base of Low Pull 5.10a. Total hike time is less than 10 minutes.
