DescriptionThis is a newly discovered area with one very exceptional wall called The Crime Scene. (Many of the routes are named using a Climb/Crime pun.) This wall faces east and has 5 sport climbs and 1 mixed route. From left to right, the routes are 13a, 11c, 12b (mixed), 12c, 12a, 11c/d.
Getting ThereFrom Westport, take Route 22 north, then turn right onto Lake Shore Road. Drive approximately 4 miles, then park on the right at the Split Rock Wild Forest trailhead.
Rather than follow the hiking trail, hike south across a small stream to a logging road. Follow this uphill, then level. After a while, you will join the yellow hiking trail. Follow this for a few minutes; you are now paralleling the stream in a shallow canyon. Turn R off trail and bushwhack 4 minutes to the stream; the cliff is on the opposite side, facing east. It takes about 10-15 minutes.
