Description

Southern most part of the cliff line - first area under rediscovery/development in 2015.

When Jeff Engel told me there was a cliff on Nelson Road that could be developed, I thought the crag name would end up being "Nelson" or "Nelson Road". Something easy, basic, descriptive. I further thought we could name routes after the 80's hair band Nelson. Jeff suggested Willie Nelson instead, which made far more sense in the long run considering I am fan of the latter and not the former.

After a couple of days there, I discovered the locals already called the cliff M&M Hill. So, that all went out the window. This area was the first to begin development, so the idea transferred from crag to area and was named Willie Wall. The first five routes to go up all had names derived from song names by Willie Nelson.

When I got home from that first weekend at the Hill, I felt like Charlie being given the keys to the Chocolate Factory by Willy Wonka. When I said that out loud, it seemed that Willy Wonka themed names should also be acceptable. You will find references to both as this area develops.

Getting There

Park in the gravel pit 0.8 miles up Nelson Road after turning from Crane Lake Rd. Walk north along Nelson Road for about 0.2 miles and turn right on the first License Plate Path marked with plate TYP-563. Southernmost portion of M&M Hill.
