* Note - Route and trail improvements are currently underway so stay aware to climbers cleaning along the trail and rock routes. Please be considerate to the developers / bolters.
ROUTES along the South Sections are generally taller climbs that offer a range of difficulty.
RATINGS: While easier climbs are given a rating number representing the climb to be no harder than the rating represented, routes rated 5.10 and up are given a specific max crux rating. This should help you plan your visit and navigate your way along the bluff while using Mountain Project. Please provide feedback using your MP App. Star rating and rate difficulty feedback helps the next visitors use the app.
