Access Issue: Williamson Rock is currently closed to climbing. Details
Williamson Rock is under a temporary closure to all recreational uses, including climbing, pursuant to a ruling by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that the area is critical habitat for the endangered yellow-legged mountain frog. Efforts by the non-profit organization Friends of Williamson Rock, in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service, are underway to regain climbing access to Williamson. For information on the status of these efforts, and to learn how you can help, contact the Friends of Williamson Rock: williamsonrock.org Per the Access Fund's update, in 2017 the Forest Service hopes to begin an environmental study of the impact of allowing limited climbing to resume. In the meantime, the Forest Service supervisor has extended the closure until January, 2017.
Description [Suggest Change]
This unique route starts with interesting 5.11 climbing to the first crux, followed by a series of strenuous stems to an overlap, above which no-rest power-endurance moves lead to the anchors.
Location [Suggest Change]
Locate a large ledge, the approach to which is protected by a single bolt. Clip the bolt, climb to the ledge, and then head up the line of bolts leading straight to the so-called Hell Cave, really just an overlap, 40 feet up. Continue above the overlap past a couple more bolts, to the anchors.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bolts to chain anchor.
