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.
DescriptionIn-your-face from the start this Generation Wall classic powers up steep jugs to a slight runout and exciting moves over an arching roof midway. Past the roof the angle eases and it's a simple matter of holding on for the ride to the anchors.
Being flexible helps on this as some stemming down low keeps the pump at bay and endurance isn't a bad thing either.
LocationCenter of the wall above a slab of rock. A prominent arched roof midway which the route passes over is a helpful feature to locate the route.
