Access Issue: Forest Thinning to begin July 16th at the base of Mt. Elden- Closures are in effect Details


Obvious bulging face... Start on a good jug, go to a bad right hold, and a long powerful move up right to a good slot. Top out on a ledge 12' up and downclimb the easy crack to the right.


At the base of the cliffs near the end of downtown, just up the hill from the Twilight Zone alcove.


Pad and spotter
