DescriptionNewly developed/developing area that gets fairly early sun that lasts until almost 2pm on those cold winter days.
ATTENTION as a joke we are calling this an advanced area, your standard belay card does not get you in. If you have trouble getting down the Central Gully then think again. This is not a good place for kids babies or dogs. The climbs are great but the base is exposed with a lot of loose rock. Getting to the routes requires a loose exposed scramble. There is not much of a base and it is a steep slope down to the river. The trail from Warning Signs is also steep, loose and exposed. When you pull your rope it will likely get caught on the ledge above the base and pulling it further will bring rocks down. If you drop something it will likely fall down the steep slope and end up in the river below.
Getting ThereApproach as for the northern end of Warning Signs(Warning:Laser Beam) and carefully work your way north/upriver to the obvious steep wall split by a crack (Stifler's Mom 5.9+).
The trail is loose sandy and exposed, take care not to fall, you may end up in the river a ways below, and also not to wipe out the trail. Your dog will likely ruin this trail.
