Description

This collection of project crags is located on the hillside across the creek at Bridge Creek Campground. The approach involves a largely overgrown cairn trail across a boulderfield, so expect to bushwhack until further traffic establishes a firm trail. Nice grippy granite slabs with some fun vertical, with abundant goofy-looking knobs. This area is still ripe for development, with some great looking lines ready to be explored. Hidden bolter caches show that some are still working on projects. Pleasant picnic/bivvy meadow.  No water in summer/fall.

Getting There

Turn left past Bridge Creek campground and follow the dirt road for 1/2 mile until you spot a pleasant free camping spot on the left. A further 1/4 mile leads to a spur road on the left (leads down to a makeshift helipad, can be seen on satellite imagery). Directly across from this spur is the start of the climber's trail. Beware of cars zooming to get to the Stewart trailhead.

Do your best to follow cairns up and to the right through increasing brush. Break through to an overgrown boulder field. Stick to the higher rocky paths to avoid walls of brush (and protect the plantlife). As you approach the crags you will be able to see the prominent 3 white cleaned streaks on Scuttlebuttress. The current trail leads almost directly to the Midlands area. Expect a 1-1.5 hour hike in, depending on pathfinding.
