Description

Small Top-Rope crag (20-25 feet) or V0- highball bouldering wall with short walking access. Less than vertical with interesting easy+moderate cracks - clean rock.

Top-Roping likely requires a very long static line - (no trees near the top).

Lack of trees allows ground vegetation (including sun-loving prickers) to grow quickly -- which can obstruct TR access and bouldering descent scrambling around the right (SE) end of the wall - or hinder walking access to the cliff base - (though the climbing rock itself is clean).

SSW exposure and lack of trees make this nice for cool days in the afternoon.

warning: The rock on and around this cliff has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2014. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Getting There

From the main trailhead, walk North on dirt road uphill for 0.2 mile to an intersection. Turn sharp left on dirt road and go SW about 0.1 mile to another intersection. Go about two steps along the right fork dirt road, look up the hill to spot the crag (distinctive cracks identified from photo). Leave the dirt road to the right and walk North up the hill about 40 yards to reach the rock.

. (about 30 yards east from the Whetstone Wall)
. . Time + Effort: about +150 vertical feet uphill over 0.4 mile distance (+45m uphill over 0.7km).

Alternative: from the from the first intersection, turn sharp left on dirt road and go WSW but only about 60 yards, until see Tarzan Swing rock (15 ft high) on right. Leave road to right and walk WNW diagonal uphill 80 yards along the base of rocks until reach base of Hi E.
