The prime climbing season graph is slightly misleading...this is the only crag under a few hours drive that gets all day sun, that white + heat reflective rock, minimal forest shade at the base of the tallest moderates. On a clouldless sunny winter day its a grest place to introduce non climbing friends to the sport if youre itching for some exposure...bring a full 60m rope and let friends toperop in sneakers...create eliminate face climbs between obvious crack features for some contrived fun..if you lead routes listed as "sport" bring a very competent belayer and climb 2 number grades above what's listed...they are runnout...do not teach your new gf to lead belay here Nov 25, 2018
