Description Suggest change

Great granite in a superb remote wilderness location. All anchors can be easily reached from the top and set up for TR. There is plenty of hard trad cracks and sport climbs. Lots of potential in the area for more TR if you want to set gear anchors. There is over 50+ climbs in Old Camp Bluff area. All the route names have come from a old archived Highway 88 climbing web page. If anyone has more accurate info on FA parties or more info please share.

All anchors are without chains, quick links, etc.  Please feel free to bring and install.

Getting There Suggest change

From the locked gate follow the trail and cairns to the top of the wall. Multiple ways there. You will walk up from the back of the area and be directly on top. 2nd-4th class access to all TR anchors. Or you can walk left around to the base of the climbs. 10-15 minute hike from the road.
