Description

A small sector of great climbing near the "Invasion" wall at Cowell.

There is something at Mt. Hudson for everyone, whether beginner or advanced.

Best time for climbing is definitely the fall/early winter for Hudson, as the poison ivy and overgrowth at this crag can sometimes be horrendous.

Getting There

Going to Invasion/Font Red:

Turn right onto a road with a "road ends" sign, and veer to the right. The trailhead is at the end of the road.
Follow the trail till it drops you on top of the Hudson Shelter.

Going into Cowell, turn right on 1204B which is marked by a small, brown plastic marker and often a bra hanging in the tree above it. It's before the left turn on 1204C for Invasion. Great crag! Mar 24, 2014

Getting there: about 4 miles east of highway 7 on Cowell Road turn south onto 1204b. There will be a dead end sign that currently has a Five Ten sticker on it. A small road branches off right after a few hundred feet. Take this until it dead ends. That is where the approach trail starts. Follow the trail south and then west until you reach the waterfall/cave area. Head right (climber's left) to reach the established climbs. Mar 24, 2015
