Summer closures Details
I believe this area falls under a voluntary closure during mid summer. I speculate it is probably to allow undisturbed cattle for a local rancher with grazing rights.
DescriptionKimber Almond told me when he was exploring in the Circle Creek drainage and found this crack in the 90's that he was shocked no one had yet climbed it. He said he cleaned out the moss and lichen and discovered a sweet little yosemite like finger/hand crack in a corner.
The crux comes about mid way, and is easily overcome with some liebacking. Patina face holds adorn the right wall of this vertical right-facing route. I would agree with Bingham's guide, and give this climb 3 stars if not for the long approach for only two climbs on the formation, and shortness of the route. A budding 11a leader would likely appreciate this climb more than anyone.
