Access Issue: Portions of Mt. Elden are closed for Forest Thinning Details
As part of a massive forest thinning project portions of Mt. Elden are closed to entry. Currently access to West Elden is closed.
Rick Flare is the flaring dihedral to crack that starts 25 feet off the deck. Originally a pure trad climb, but was later bolted due to the need for another good warm-up. As a trad climb, one had to solo to the start of the dihedral(9+), and then place gear in the flaring crack - fairly bold. For this reason it was rarely, if ever, climbed. Now it is well bolted, and will be one of the best and most popular routes at the crag. Excellent varied climbing, and the best warm-up in this area of the cliff.
