Description

The Southern Wall faces north and is located just along the creek. It provides shade all day. It has a great ledge to walk along the creek and to access the number of future routes. There will easily be 20 routes, both trad and sport in this area. CAN'T WAIT! It's a perfect summer crag! Climb in the shade then jump in the sunny creek. Watch for canyoneers finishing the canyon. Close your eyes as they strip out of their wetsuits.

Getting There

Follow the carn maked trail from the SW corner of the ADOPT lot. It droppes you into Spring Creek. You'll pass the Confluence Wall and continue down stream 200 yards till it meets Christopher Creek. Cross the creek to 150 yrds of mostly clean, liken covered, bomber quartzite. 10-15 minutes approach.

A great area to spend a summer morning -- shade the whole time and it's pretty near the Solstice. Stunning. Just wish there had been canyoneers stripping to add to the scenery! Jun 17, 2016

Water's running fresh and clear after all the rain, temps are mild, this wall is a spectacular place to be! And I see new development upstream -- assuming it's you guys moving along? Jun 1, 2017
