Getting weather forecast...
Found this area by accident when looking for Malaria Crag. The area is secluded because of its steep approach (3min), but you are rewarded with 2 fun traditional climbs, and an Arete top rope. The first climb being a nice 5.7 crack with a cool chalkstone "Blarney Stone". The second being a hard 5.11 face that is protected on small gear (done ground up) and its called "Booze Me Up it Goes on Gear". If your a fan of Ween you will get the names. The Arete will soon be a lil sport climb, but as of now its a fun lil 5.10ish top rope. So, over all a nice area to lead up a nice lil' 5.7 to a cool ridge and then set up top ropes; that is, unless your really comfortable on small gear hit up the 5.11 face. The anchors as of now are gear anchors 1-2in, a big but sharp boulder (bring padding and see pics), and a small but seeming trustworthy tree, so bring static rope. Climbs are 1 to 2 star but fun lil ridge top out with a cool view of the canyon.
Getting There [Edit]
Park at the parking area, and you can see the top of the crag from here. Walk down the steep gully and past the broken railing in the creek. head directly up the other side of the canyon at a cool looking curved tree (see pic). This gully is very steep and loose so use cation (3 class). Or there is a walk up around the back of the crag; head towards the other crags and head up the backside of Outer Quebec. So, you will pass the curved tree and hike for about 1min then turn left up a 2nd-3rd class scramble (way more solid) to the base of the crag. As for the decent you can scramble down the gully next to Blarney Stone and this is 4th class. Finally as for the anchor bring padding for the boulder on top!
