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.
Description [Suggest Change]
This is a really good route up a slightly less-than-vertical face which will keep you on your toes from start to finish. Approach up an easy two bolt slab (5.6) and belay or do it from the ground in one long pitch.
Location [Suggest Change]
This is the furthest right route in the entire area and the first one you'll pass on the descent into the Secret Garden.
Protection [Suggest Change]
9 bolts, closed shuts (take a few more draws if doing it in a single pitch from the ground)
