Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionCheers Ledge, at the eastern end of Horseshoe Rock, has around 6 climbs ranging from 5.6-5.11. One set of bolts at the top will permit you to rappel down to the belay stations for the climbs in this section. Each climb may be easily top-roped. The climbs are also bolted, though some of the bolts have been chopped and others are well-spaced. There are limited opportunities for pro below the bulge and almost none above it.
Most of the climbs in this section have a bouldery start and then surmount a large bulge in about the middle of the climb. The bulge is shorter and less than vertical to the right. It is around 8 feet high and slightly overhanging for the climbs to the left.
Please note that these are not the original route names. If you have any information about the area's history please share.
Access is only from the top, or along the base of the cliff. Details
The tree farm at the base of the cliff is private property. All access if by rappelling in from the top of the cliff.
Getting ThereAccess is only from the top, or along the base of the cliff. The tree farm at the base of the cliff is private property. All access is by rappelling in from the top of the cliff.
Follow the logging road from Wolf Mountain Road to the 3rd single car pull off on the right. There should be a rock cairn here. There is a faint path just before this pullout that quickly descends to the cliff face in about 100 yards.
The path ends at the top of the cliff where there is often some water seepage. From here the belay station is about 30 feet down a gently sloping face, just below a large shrub and flake. Below here the angle steepens. While the rappel is very low angle to get to the belay stations a slip would be bad news. You can access all the belay stations for Cheers Ledge in less than half a rope length or reach Cheers Ledge in just under one rope length.
