Access Issue: Don't trespass outside SCC boundaries Details

Description

This small ledge sits above the big roof in the Adventure Roof area at the left end of the crag, near the SCC property boundary. A few nice sport climbs can be done starting off this ledge. The ledge fits 3-4 people comfortably.

Getting There

Keep heading left along the cliffside trail until the trail rises up and continues along beneath a large, low, horizontal roof. Shortly before you reach the wooden sign marking the SCC property boundary, look for a closely-spaced series of bolts that starts near the lowest lip of the roof and zig-zags up through the overhangs above.

Stick clip the first bolt, or if your stick is long enough then skip a few if possible. Batman up to your first draw, and then start aiding up the bolt ladder through the overhangs. Etriers may make your life easier here, or at least a few slings of various length. Clip an old piton before finally hauling yourself up onto the ledge, 25-30 feet above where you started.
