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.
What is it?Bouldery moves down low are the technical crux, after which you can breathe easy as the middle section is fairly straightforward. Higher, the climb steepens as it enters a scooped out area which provides a second "pump" crux with long moves (or a dyno) to a huge jug.
Often used as a warm-up for the harder lines nearby, this fun climb should be extended as the climb ends arbitrarily at anchors instead of going all the way to the top of the crag.
Where is it?This popular route is found between Liquid Night on the left and Strange as Angels on the right.
