DescriptionThis is a 40'-60' tall cliff that has about 25-30 climbs so far, with potential for a few more harder lines. Mostly mixed, with some all trad, and a few all sport climbs. Good quality rock. A large amount of climbs in the 5.8-5.10+ range, with some 5.11 and 5.12 routes and projects as well. It drys out fairly quickly as it gets afternoon sunshine.
Route descriptions in the NWOR book.
Getting ThereDrive from Stevenson on Red Bluff Road, and basically follow it for 8.5 miles. You should pass a small, but cool waterfall on the left about two miles from the cliff. The next bridge you get to the road takes a sharp left. Take the right fork (basically go straight), and the cliff is about 100' further and straight up.
Getting to the base of the cliff is a workout. You can see the cliff plainly from the parking area. Its about 500' feet straight above you. The trail is located in the trees about 100 feet before the open area below the cliff. Follow the trail as it goes steeply up the hill, and ends on the right side of the cliff.
Trail is on the far side of the parking. Park near the fire pit, and then the trail is about 100' up the old road, on the right side. Look for a rock cairn, and a sign saying "Cliffs".
