Description

The naples crag is a small, tight-grained, granitic crag that sits on the highland flats bench land below the majestic Roman Nose peak. The climbing faces west and catches late afternoon sun in spite of the heavily forested base. The ideal climbing season is April thru October, but can be visited year around. Naples is home to short, bouldery routes from 5.9 to 5.12. At this point all routes, excluding two, are tradition leads. All routes can be top-roped from walk-arounds right or left. Although this is state land, it is not uncommon to encounter colorful local flavor. Please be respectful and tactful. Do not block road and respect surrounding private land. Camping is not allowed at the crag, however, there are numerous other local options. Beer and supplies can be found at the Naples store and in Bonners Ferry. The Kootenai River Brewing Company is a brewery with excellent food in nearby Bonners Ferry.

Getting There

Exit Highway 95 to the town of Naples. Follow the Deep Creek Loop road North less than one mile from the store, school, and mill. Turn left heading West over railroad tracks on Highland Flats road. Continue up a hill 1.3 miles before turning right at the crest of the hill onto Round Mountain road. Continue North on gravel 0.4 miles. You will be able to glimpse the white granite of the crag approximately 150 feet off the road on the right side. Park at any available widening in the road (please respect the no trespassing signs on the west side of road.) and approach through the trees. A useful land mark is a rock quarry on the left across from the climbing area.
