Fossil Falls offers bouldering, toproping, and traditional climbing on 50+ documented routes up to 100 ft in length. The rock is volcanic basalt, that contains cracks and pocketed faces, made incredibly smooth and polished by the meltwater flows of prehistoric glaciers and the Owen's River. Cracks of all sizes and roofs, bulges, and overhangs in the polished basalt. Fossil Falls consists of five distinct areas; the Upper Area (east side & west side), the Lower Area (west side & east side), and Scott's Bluff (WHICH IS CURRENTLY CLOSED TO CLIMBING DUE TO PRIVATE PROPERTY).
