Description

This aptly named area is quite sunny, and has some enjoyable routes. The routes are longer and steeper than they seem from the road. I found at least 4 sets of 2 bolt anchors at the top of the various rocks. The few routes I've tried have been fun and the rock is solid, but beware. There are some spots with loose rock. Helmets and caution recommended.

Getting There

6.4 miles up from Chilcoot on Frenchman lake road (284), there are two pullouts on the right side of the road, the first one is right across from the crag, and the second is just around the corner. The rocks are obvious across the creek and up a short scree field. Crossing the creek can be tricky, bring extra shoes and don't underestimate the creek. There is a log in the creek, but its not quite good enough for crossing; bring extra shoes unless you have bare feet of steel.

The slope itself is fairly annoying to walk on, the rocks/dirt are loose to the base of the crags, but the actual access to the anchors at the top isn't bad for walk-offs/top rope setup.
