Description

Tucked away on Titlow Hill Rd off Forest Route 5N10 (Five and Dime), this crag offers fun, easy-moderate sport and trad climbing. Excellent area for the aspiring leader or folks just looking to change it up from Cold Springs or the rest of Land of the Lost.

The rock is quartzite and bulletproof (at least the routes that are bolted). Please keep in mind that this is a very new area, so while most of the heavy cleaning has already been done, there may be some choss. Consider yourself advised!

The rock is in the shade most of the day thanks to the west-facing cliffs being surrounded by valleys and trees.

Getting There

From Arcata, head north and take Highway 299 east towards Willow Creek. Turn right at Titlow Hill Rd (just past Berry Summit), and continue for just over 6 miles (15 minutes). Go left at the fork (Forest Route 5N10), and continue for just under 2 miles (~10 minutes). Park at the pull out on the left hand side.

Follow the cairns down the parking area slope, descend the ridgeline, cross a fallen log, contour along some boulders and the hillside through the forest, cross another fallen log, and you have arrived. The entire approach is becoming more well-traveled and takes approximately 10 minutes.
