Description

This gets a ton of sun in the afternoons and evenings, but the rocks stay pretty cool throughout the whole day. There are tons of pine trees and really cool rock formations here, even if you those that have no climbs on them. There are cabins situated pretty close to the boulders, particularly Friendship and Fellowship, so be courteous please. The rock is all granite, is still super sharp, and is not greased up at all. The falls aren't good on a few of the boulders, so bring at least 3 pads if you're planning on climbing on them.

If you know of any of the individuals that got the first accents on these rocks or any other boulders that you have climbed, feel free to edit and add anything!

Getting There

Drive up the YMCA main entrance. Make the 4th right, drive straight down, pass the Jellison Lodge, and go straight to Friendship Cabin. Park in the lot, and the rocks are less than 20 meters away.
