GPS location is inaccurate. I went there last weekend and was unable to find the place. Could someone update the coordinates and/or update the directions.
Thanks. Feb 6, 2017

I love this place. Hairway to Stheven , on the most exposed buttress, is a lovely reward after an early crux that is more confusing than hard. Often you have the place to yourself.

Nice description (good reason to buy the guidebook, I guess). This is a good summertime crag as long as you get there early and finish up by noon (faces west). Seeps pretty late into the spring if it's wet.
It's also worth noting that this crag is on private property. The land owners are cool about people climbing here but it still pays to be respectful. Jun 20, 2016

Emailed you about how to add routes. Feb 8, 2015
Greesprings is columnar basalt. Bummed that the lovely 5.11c "Boys Who 'Aint French" isn't on here! (How do you add routes?) Feb 8, 2015

I don't mean to be rude or unkind, but the rock at Greensprings is neither granite nor glacially polished. Orton's guide describes it as columnar basalt. I would agree that it is extrusive, but not basalt. The rock is very light colored for basalt, closer to rhyolite.

And, I agree with Joshua's main point; that there are a few cracks at Greensprings that provide some of Ashland's best training for slippery Yosemite cracks. Apr 27, 2013

Great climbing on polished granite. There are a lot of sport routes out here. For a more complete guide check out Greg Orton's guide book for the Rogue - excellent resource for Southern Oregon climbers. Apr 7, 2013
