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.
DescriptionScramble up the gulley left of the Freezer Burn Wall to a stance on large blocks in the gulley below the broad rounded arête. Climb the slab up and to the left on nice rounded holds and edges to a 3 bolt anchor (30 ft) or clip a bolt and continue up the arête. Climb the wild and exposed arete past 11 bolts to a stance with cold shuts on the crest of the buttress. The short 3rd pitch continues up and left and over a bulge to a bolted anchor. The difficulties on the top pitch aren't over once the bulge is pulled as finding an anchor can be problematic and the walk off to the base is long.
