DescriptionA formations large enough to be split in two, The Drilling Fields hosts a number of routes caterable to the masses. A crag with a rich history and new school additions, this area is a real crowd-pleaser for intermediate to advanced climbers.
Bolts, gear, bolts and gear...and fully run-out, unprotectable lines??? The Drilling Fields has it all. Morning sun and shade/Aftenoon shade and sun, east and west facing lines can lend to shady or sunny climbing. Prepare for a full day with routes from .10a to .12a. Climbers within the grade will not run out of options.
Bring a single rack, draws and runners, then prepare for adventurous day.
Getting ThereFound downstream from Rabbit Rock and Morning Glory, The Drilling Fields can be approached many ways. Travel down into the south creek via Parking Lot Rock. Follow the trail past Rabbit Rock and take the left fork that cuts up hill to The Drilling Fields.
