Access Issue: Private property with public access. Be mindful to keep climbing accessible!! Details
Most bouldering is on private property, but access is allowed. Be respectful of the landowners, who run the still active mine. Minimize moss removal, to just the lip for cleaning. Do not shave the top of the boulders, so to speak. Stick to established trails when possible
The Renaissance wall is a steep area with some good climbing. These are newer routes so do your part and do a little scrubbing. It takes about an hour to get to the base. Be careful getting to the base of the wall it requires some exposed ledges. This area is a great place to go when the temperatures are hot. Even when the temperatures are hot down in the low lands you might find yourself wearing a jacket. Wear a helmet its an alpine crag.
Drive up the independence mine parking. If you have a parks pass you don't need to pay, but you might need to pay for each additional person in the car. The gate opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 6. You could drive up do a gear drop then bike up the road. From the parking lot walk up the Gold Cord trail for about 5 minutes then head to the Pinnacle bowl. The 3rd edition guide book has the approach description and route info.
