Description

This area was recently clear cut by logging activities and there are no living trees. The only plants are mullins and others that prefer disturbed soils. This was once a beautiful peaceful grotto - once graced by a pile of timber 30' high right smack in the center of the draw but in 2017 the pile was slash burned. The one climb (2015) faces south, on warm winter days with sun is nice and warm and conversely, in the summer on a blazing hot day with not one pine cone for shade - you will roast. And too, the north wind is blocked nicely.

Getting There

Park as you would for Westworld just west of Breezy Point picnic area on SD 244. Again, don't block the gate and allow for additional vehicles, although, we have never seen a second vehicle here. Hike up old road about 175 yards, look across the draw to the north, there is a tower separated from the others by a grassy gully. The tower on the right is Clearcut. Head towards the tower and note the nice crack on the left side and maybe you can see through the crack. Sunlight shines through the crack a few days in late summer. This is Clearcut Tower.
