Description

A good concentration of 5.12 climbing.

The main sport climbing attraction of the Cowell Area.

Tiered roofs at a steep angle make for great climbing in all conditions even rain.

NOTE: Some routes are currently closed for their proximity to Native American wall art. Their bolts have either been chopped or contain a lock on them.
Do NOT mess with the art to jeopardize access.

Dave Grahams "Lost in the Hood" (V14) also lies at the beginning of this crag.

Getting There

Drive as you would to Cowell/Mt. Hudson

Once on the main dirt road drive past mt. hudson. Veer left up a hill, past some cattle guard.

Look for a cairn to the right leading downhill. Follow the trail and you will immediately see the cliffline.

The Invasion has two decent warmups, a 5.10b on the far right, and a Fool and His Honey (5.11d) on the sex boulder. However, Andrew Roepke has recently bolted a great 5.10c, 5.11a and 5.12a at Fern Gulley just down the road if you are looking for more warmup routes. Worth the 2 min drive from the Invasion campsite! Apr 19, 2016
