Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details


This is the second route from the left on the small west-facing wall on the South Face of Surprising Crag (just right of Chasing Sticks).

Climb past an overhang, layback up to a stance, and climb thin seams and face to the top.


5 or 6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Has some fun moves. Definitely surprisingly stiffer than it looks from the ground. Jul 29, 2005

First day to the park. On-site lead Vitamin V. Wish I could say I agree with the ratings. In my very limited experience, I would give it a 5.8-. Fun climb! I'll be back for more of it and its neighbors. Jul 16, 2007

This one was definitely fun, and (I thought) much easier than it looks from the ground. Seemed about 5.9. Jun 27, 2010
