Description

Boy scout troop maintains the area.
Two bolted cliffs, one in the shade nearly all day. Total of about 20 bolted routes. Higher cliff gets sun after noon

Rock is metamorphosed granite with large crystals of feldspar.
Pretty solid quality, cracks and flakes sometimes feel like they're close to giving.
Parking is along the road, in a small dirt patch. Maybe 10 cars with more roadside parking up the road.

The area is a wildlife preserve, so be sure not to bring your pets as they are prohibited.

last time i climbed there the first bolt of a climb was loose, and it was glued with some soft silicon stuff. Very concerning. Has this been updated?

It was just that one bolt though, the other bolted climbs were fine. Sep 24, 2017
New bolts very clean area and maintained trails.
I took my 6 year old for her first climb she had a blast, a great place to introduce new climbers to the sport. May 13, 2017
The area has been bolted for years and updated bolts have been placed. Check all bolts from top to make sure they are there. Boy Scott's did place trails a few years ago but they don't replace or maintains the area from what I have seen. Sep 5, 2016
I'm very interested in this area (my parents have a house ~20 minutes away). Is there more info? I can find some pictures of toproping there, but nothing about sport/bolts. Mar 21, 2016
