Description

Difficult to find, pristine condition - which means the routes here are uncleaned, dirty, lichen-covered, and there is no fixed protection. Being slabs, gear is a rare treat; be prepared for long, long runouts. Your best rack will be a wire brush, a whisk broom, and a chock pick - for dredging dirt out of cracks.
Give these cliffs plenty of drying time. Lichen that is even slightly damp is horrendously demoralizing.
So, why climb here? For the adventure of it. Despite the unkempt conditions, there is plenty worthwhile to do: enjoyable friction, an occasional steep step requiring concentration and skill, and a beautiful backdrop as you ascend. This area provides a feel for what it is like to explore Crane Mountain.
These slabs predominantly face SSW, so they offer good late autumn afternoon climbing.

Getting There

Scramble up to the base of the left side of the Bella Vista Slab, then contour westward, crossing a grown-in talus slope, to the base of this slab. A dark, mossy streak divides the lowest large slab in half; to date all the climbs begin to the left of it. There are short patches of slab, below a screen of evergreens, that have been climbed as part of the routes described here. They are quite dirty, low-angle, and generally unprotectable.
