Description

Flag Pole is the smallest and most secluded of the parks six prominent features. This small dome is located at the Northeastern edge of the park. It is home to several isolated and seldom visited bouldering areas. The granite at Flag Pole offers a distinctive texture featuring large sharp crystals. Much of the climbing here is highball in nature.

There are documented and undocumented boulders and problems scattered on and around Flag Pole. But most of the established climbing exists on The Redtail Rocks, The Caribou Boulders, and The Boundary Boulders.

Getting There

The easiest approaches are via Sandy Creek or from Buzzards Roost.

To approach from the parking lot, follow Sandy Creek from the East end of the parking lot. Flag Pole is the dome on your left immediately before the fence marking the park's boundary.

From Buzzards Roost, look for a lightly used climber's trail on the Northeastern side of Buzzards. The trail is located close to the gully that is commonly used as the descent or top tope access for Fear of Flying and Little Feat. If walking around Buzzards from Bush Crack (head to climber's left) the trail is found before reaching Little Feat.
