Description

Partly shaded 70 foot cliff. Secluded. Shelving Rock is prone to loose/fragmented rock, so always wear a helmet. This area was established only a few years ago so you may encounter loose rock. We noted a few important holds were flexing on a couple different climbs.

Please upload some photos and draw routes on them if you have time. I didn't think to snap photos on my visit here and was surprised to see it had not been added to MP. The descriptions work well in finding things but nothing beats a photo with drawn in routes.

Getting There

Use the main Shelving Rock directions to get you near the lake. BEFORE the parking area described for the main Shelving Rock climbs, on the right is a parking area for hiking Shelving Rock Mountain. Park here. Take the hiker trail for 2 minutes to an intersection. At the intersection go forward [Northeast] on a climber's path which is well established (see Ben Thompson's photo). You reach the right side of the cliff [first climb will be Tourista] in about 15 minutes.
