Description Suggest change

The rakkup guide still has "cold day in hell" listed as an open project 

Getting There Suggest change

Located near the northern terminus of reeds creek road and hwy 220 just south of the Upper Tract community. Limited parking is available: the gravel lot at the intersection is your best bet. Please park courteously.

Once on Reeds Creek Rd the cliff will be visible on the right. Additional limited parking can be found on the left in a small pullout and a quarter mile west at the bridge.

About five hundred feet up Reeds from the parking lot 220, you will find a small set of rock steps through the grass that grants access to the far right end of the cliff.

The first wall is the Gypsy Wall.
