Description

Easy slab wall with numerous lines in the 5.1 to 5.3 range. There's good friction on the rock, and solid hands and feet. Mediocre pro placements due to flared cracks.

The rock is shaded in the morning and early evening. Hikers on the Red Dot Trail are visible, but they won't notice you. There are lots of blueberries and some wineberries in the area, and a blackberry bush at the top of the climb.

Getting There

Follow the Red Dot Trail for ~0.5 miles. The terrain levels off (relatively) for a while, and there is an unmarked trail forking off to the right. Follow this for ~100 meters to find the slab. It should be visible from the Red Dot Trail.

Took my 3.5 year old boys here for their first time climbing. I had no issue scrambling up, down and around this in my hiking boots to build them a little anchor. It's not a bad little wall for a kids intro. The rocky approach and return was much more of a challenge. Pro is sparse, most of the cracks flare. If you follow natural weaknesses, it's 5.0, but if you try a plumb vertical line, probably a little harder. Wall is maybe 40' tall, about 45 degree slabbed in. Jul 30, 2017
