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.
DescriptionSomehow this obscure route never made it into any guidebook but here it is.
Starting from a loose and unstable slope climb the vertical face above which bulges at the crux. Decent climbing but the sliding belayer syndrome takes away slightly from the appeal.
LocationNot actually on Stash Slab but about 200 meters around to the left and up the hillside. The base is sloping and unstable dirt so be careful when belaying.
