Description Suggest change

Note: These approach directions and the descriptions for all the routes in this area were written by Brad Young and posted on this site with his permission. The topo posted in the photos section was originally created by Brad Young and modified by John Cook (to show all additional routes after the initial topo was created). The location photo was shot and labeled by John Cook.

The Upper Flumes is the distinct, separate apron of rock extending almost 200 feet right from the route Lichen to Lead

Getting There Suggest change

Continue on the Balconies Cliff trail past the Tilting Terrace climber access sign to an unmarked trail on the left. The trail cuts sharply back left and up a slope to the base of the crag. Walk up the trail for about 50 feet to the base of the wall, moving around and through oak trees. Routes are listed from left to right with the left-most route (Where the Sun Don't Shine) starting about 50 feet farther along the wall (climber's left).
