DescriptionCreamy white, calcite covered granite and bright orange streaks make Vista Crag some of the prettiest rock in the canyon. However, climbing at Vista Crag tends to be very strenuous and hard for the grade. The drive is far, the hike is long and steep, but the rock quality and the views make it all worth it. If you like hard sport climbing on the best rock in the canyon, Vista Crag is waiting for you.
Youll likely be the only ones there.
Getting ThereFrom Teds Place, drive 41.5 miles and park in a small pulloff on either side of the road and a green gate with a DOW sign. Do not park in front of the access gate, and be sure to park completely off the highway. If the parking lot is full, a larger pulloff with ample space can be found about 0.2 miles farther up the road.
A faint, but cairned trail switchbacks up the hillside eventually traversing back across to Vista Crag itself.
