Description

Most of the classic lines in the meadow like The Condor, Crack and Pockets, and Gorillas in the Mist, to name a few, were climbed by "Trad Bob" and the R.P.G. back in the day. Because the boulders are more densely shaded by pine trees, it takes a few extra days to dry out after a rain than other areas on Pine Mountain. So please wait, it's worth it. This is easily my favorite spot on Pine Mountain.

Getting There

From the Enlightenment Ridge campsite go North and follow the, now well defined, climbers trail into the meadow. It's about 3 minutes.

Yeah we should totally move it from Enlightenment Ridge to here, as it's one of the gems of the boulder and how I usually refer to the area (The Darkside). May 15, 2015

It was added into Enlightenment Ridge area before the Meadow was added as it's own area. Also I think it's a V11. May 13, 2015

Seeing as I get asked at least once a week for info about the meadow, I figured
I'd finally put some more stuff in here, even tho its not as cool as the hand-drawn maps and topos i scribble out at the climbing gym when im pumped out of my mind Jun 16, 2014
