The crag has two general areas. The Main Wall and the Dodge Dart Area. The routes are pretty well bolted, but they are not sport routes. Gear is required to protect parts of each route. The walls are south facing so they will get sun all day. During the summer it is said that it can get pretty hot and humid here. The best time of year to climb is spring and fall with cooler temperatures and less vegetation.
Some of the classics are: Wild Rosy, The Other Side of the Tracks, Erocktica, and Romantica.
The rock is Tonalitic Orthogneiss. Which is a granite with more than 20% quartz. Giving it a very rough texture perfect for climbing.
Spring mountain hasn't come on to many climbers radars yet. So to escape the crowds, Spring mountain is a great place to go do some climbing. But this has also been its undoing. As that without the traffic, the routes tend to be retaken by the moss. Thanks to the dedication of the route developers and their continuing route cleaning and trail maintenance, this awesome rock has not disappeared back into the wilderness.
A Campsite is at the trailhead for parties that want to camp out and spent a couple days climbing/hiking. Another campsite with a beach is about a half mile further up the road.
