Classic Rock and Routes

Classic Rock has a dense collection of moderate but excellent quality routes.

Classic Rock is a steep slab of heavily featured, bulletproof limestone. The routes tend to be moderate though not easy. The climbing is technical, sustained, and thoughtful with runnels, pockets, pinches, and tiny edges.

The crag is 75 to 80 feet in height. Most of the routes are about 10 bolts in length. All the routes are equipped with convenient sport anchors for quick lowering, consisting of an open cold shut and 3/8" chain with a steel carabiner. A 60 meter rope will get you to the ground from all routes at Classic Rock.

Getting There Suggest change

Take the trail out of the parking lot and stay left at the fork.   Follow the trail to the crags. About 15 minutes to Burning Spear & Classic Rock and another 5 minutes to Rock of Ages. See the trail map.

The developed crags of Mortal Earth are visible from the parking, see the beta picture.
