Description

Little Black Cliff is a small crag with a casual approach. It has mostly 6 bolt sport climbs with a few mixed/gear routes. Most of the climbs can be toproped by hiking around looker's right of the main crag.

Getting There

From the parking just before the bridge, look uphill on the passenger side of your car, and throw a rock, you probably just missed hitting the crag.

There are 4th class/easy 5th class lines extending up the walls above this cliff that see the occasional traffic, and there are a few undocumented climbs that we have never bothered to try mixed in here as well as some random bolts for old mixed routes that rarely come in. I used to have a hand drawn guide to the place, but have lost it over the years. Please feel free to correct names if you know them! Jul 2, 2015
