You will venture to this place because you love bushwhacking, you don't particularly care for people, and or you just want a little adventure. Cambodia has a handful of vertical to slightly less than vertical routes. This would certainly not be an option in the rain, but worth checking out if its nice fall day on a busy weekend.

Getting There

From the parking on the southbound side of 19 it should take someone traveling at an average gait about an hour to arrive at the crag. Head up the railroad grade that accesses the rest of upper meadow. about a third of a mile past the trail for fourth buttress there will be an outcropping on the right to get to the river. about 50 feet further there is a small stream that runs downhill from the left, hike along that stream and eventually it will take you in between the two cliff bands that make up Cambodia. There is also a trail that is even with an island in the river. This trail starts a few minutes past the stream and spits you out at the end of the Crag. Both trails will require some finding and a little bit of the ole timey bushwhacking.

Cambodia can be easily approached from the campsite across from the Brilliant Pebble, South Side Crags. When the water is low, rock-hop across the river just upstream from the campsite (easy, dry crossing in mid-Sept 2017). Continue in to the woods where you will see a wide, but not very well-travelled trail (this is the continuation of the Upper Meadow trail past 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th buttresses).

Turn left (downstream) and follow it for about 10 minutes to a small tree with a pile of rocks at its base, which is roughly even with the end of a grass-covered island in the river (the river is clearly visible through the trees at this point).

Head uphill on a cleared path. A few hundred feet in, at the top of the first steeper section, turn left and traverse the hillside for a few hundred feet until you can bear right walk directly up to the rock near the route Flash-Bang. The path is not well-worn, but is cleared (as of fall 2017) of branches and blow-downs. It's about 3-4 minutes up from the main trail along the river. Oct 6, 2017
