Description

The biggest and most traveled area at Storm Castle Creek, this main area is primarily a sport venue with one memorable trad line. The majority of the crag faces south and southwest so expect sun the entire day. A great place for cold, fall/winter climbing, this is also a nice escape on cloudy days when you need a quick fix. Rock quality varies from choss to bullet proof, so don't let your guard down too soon.

Getting There

This main area is the first crag you reach after the hike from the main lot. Park and walk past the dumpster to a faint trail to the right. Follow this trail for about 10 - 15 minutes, the first routes you come should will be The Bad and/or The Ugly.
