- Roughneck Area
Note that the annual closures of the Park View Dome, The Ranch Hand, Black Creek Wall, and Sawmill Crag have been permanently lifted. These cliffs will continue to be monitored, but will only close if a new nest is spotted.
The sport climbs here provide a fantastic alternative to lugging in the whole trad rack, but the trad and mixed routes make it worth your while.
The Marmot Pass and Scout Line trails cross over the ridge above depositing you at the cabin as well. They're harder but worth hiking to check out the terrain.
From the cabin, head uphill on the Lion's Back Trail. After you go up the hill a bit, take a left on the Chimney Rock Trail. A very pleasant stroll for a mile and bit more takes you to the Elk Falls Trail which drops to the base of the spire on it's way to Elk Falls. A short scramble through trees on the North side gets you to most of the established climbs.
