I think it's important to note that the west side of the Lightner Creek Canyon (where the boulders are) is completely closed to recreation from Dec. 1 to Apr. 15 for wildlife protection.

Someone needs to put this up on the main description for the page, as uninformed climbers who do not realize this may get access compromised for the rest of us. Nov 26, 2016
Gee... Glad you took the time to list this "andstone" area & the 2 problems you think you did the first ascent of.... Classic.... Aug 8, 2013
