Description Suggest change

The Main Crag has the longest routes at Crosier Mountain. There are slabs, knobby faces, easy trad cracks, a hard roof crack, and some steep, thoughtful routes. ***A 60 METER ROPE IS MANDATORY FOR MOST RAPPELS.***

Getting There Suggest change

The easiest approach to climbs from Levitation to Auspicious Sunrise is to cross the large meadow on the approach. When you first enter the meadow head for the left edge of the buttress right of and behind the Main Crag (see photo). There is a cairn at the edge of the meadow with more behind it leading up the hill. To reach the other routes, continue up the trail until just before it crosses the drainage and heads up the south side of the valley. Follow cairns (these may have been taken down) angling up to the right, across the meadow, to a double cairn just below a big down tree. From here, angle up and right following more cairns to the base of the cliff near Squat Tower.
