Description

Umbrella Rocks(s) are two glacial erratic boulders that settled near what is now known as Lake Cavanaugh rd. Between the two boulders there are about 15 pitches with most of them rated in the 5.11-5.12 range. All but one of these pitches are bolted face climbs so 12 draws should do the trick for gear.

Getting There

Hwy 9 south to Lake Cavanaugh rd. 7.2 miles look for a pull out. park and hike in on the north side of the rd up BR/02 veering right at the first two junctions. Look for a pullout and a small clear cut on the right side of the road and a faint trail that leads into the clear-cut into the forest and to the boulders. About a 20-30 minutes from lake Cavanaugh rd.
