Technically not an access issue, but rock knocked off the east face can descent quickly to the highway. Details
Safety details: rocks knocked or dropped off the east face can easily roll to the highway. In the summer, road bikers are occasionally on the pavement, so in consideration of those on the highway, have someone in your party get the rocks-breakage off the highway quickly.
DescriptionThis traverse route was done to establish a safe way to get far out SW on the summit ridge of the 99 Mile Rock.
The route begins where the north end of the fin/ridge blends into the rising slope (ground level) and the rock of the fin grounds out on its uphill side. Its intent is mostly for rap bolt anchor access, but it could be done as an out and back climb or some rap anchors exist where the fin rock makes an abrupt dive to the southward from it mostly level top.
