Access Issue: NEW RESTRICTIONS Details

Description

This face gets morning shade and is located up on a hillside to the north east of the trail. Routes seem fairly new and should clean up well with more laps. It is best to belay from the higher ledge located just above the main staging area. Scramble up easy terrain, belay from the ledge, and you'll have plenty of rope to belay with.

Getting There

From the parking lot head down the main trail and take a right where the trail splits. Staying to the right, head to the main area where you will see the dam on the left. Pass Lakeside Rock and look for the slab on the right near some pine trees. Scramble up to the ledge and you'll see four sport routes in a row.

Oregon Trail is basically the far north end of Lakeside Rock.....maybe that will help with the location.... Nov 14, 2014

These are pretty good. Some a little grainy but engaging, nicely bolted, easy to access and better yet.... easy decent. They'll clean up, heck may even happen this season! Nov 14, 2014

Fun routes a little gritty. Perfect morning shade. Super easy to get to right now with no water behind dam. Worth getting on. Todd's direction in this post spot on Apr 4, 2016
