Extremely Sensitive Access - Please Read
The majority of Ozone is likely owned by Washington Department of Transportation. Climbing is not officially condoned or acknowledged, though they are aware that it's happening. Every climber here must adhere to the following guidelines if we want to maintain long-term access:
1.) DON'T GET HURT! Rescues are the biggest liability and headache. Make conservative climbing choices and be crystal-clear about commands to your partner.
2.) Park legally! Your vehicle must be within the white line and perpendicular to the road. No parking parallel to the road; this is to save space as well as make it easier when leaving. No parking along the guard rail or anywhere except the two pullouts.
3.) Pack everything out! Wrappers, poop, banana peels, all of it. If your thing falls down the slope, retrieve it.
4.) Dogs must be on good behavior. Better yet, leave them at home. If they're digging or chasing wildlife or barking, put them back in the car.
5.) Leave your music player at home and enjoy your intoxicants somewhere else.
It is absolutely ESSENTIAL that climbers keep themselves off the radar here or we risk access to one of the region's most popular crags.
At a section of boxy, jagged rock to the right of the prow of Masterpiece Theatre, locate a bolt about 10 feet up. Climb through easy blocky rock and avoid manteling onto the small ledge by going left. Make moves off of the first ledge, style points for not belly flopping, and up to a second ledge. Onwards and upwards through what are now not-too-dirty jugs, to another good stance, and a last slightly tenuous reach move to obtain the anchors.
You could also go right at the second big ledge onto Sweeping Beauty. This is the recommended approach for that route.
