Access Issue: 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.
Begin climbing just left of the arête on brilliant orange and red rock. Work up on horizontal edges and incuts to a large flake. Surmount the flake and work right on flakey features to the anchor. A small belay platform exists, but the slope is very unstable. Be careful of dislodging rocks on climbers below.
Left of the prominent arête and steep wall left of the loose gulley and next to a large snag/tree.
