Description [Suggest Change]

This crag gets nice afternoon sun. Fairly secluded due to it being on the other side of the salmon river, requiring some sort of floating craft to get there! Good quality granite that required some brushing to reveal all its secrets!

Getting There [Suggest Change]

This crag is opposite and just downstream from the towers at 202. If you have your own boat, it is fun to put in upstream above the class iv rapid, shotgun and run it to get to the climbing. This would also entail running the class iv rapid, the dam about half a mile below the crag. This is how the first two climbs were done. Later in the season, when the water levels are too low to run these Rapids, you can park at the pullout for 202 and ferry across just upstream from the crag below the bend in the river. In really low water you might be able to wade it somewhere. Once you are across the river, hike up steep slopes for a few minutes to the crag. If you have rafted, there is a take out at elk creek, about a mile below the sunbeam dam, alternatively run the rest of the day stretch to Torrey's ten miles down stream.
