Access Issue: Climbing permitted, but keep a low profile
Lou Cerutti adds: On our way in yesterday we were stopped by a quarry employee who initially tried to deter us from entering adding that we were on private property and that they never catch the climbers they see up there. After a friendly chat he decided to let us go. I suggested I'd be happy to speak with the owner and left him my phone number. I never heard back but we may want to add some info about keeping a low profile there.

Beautiful right arching dihedral to under cling roof, on impeccable dark orange granite. Crack in dihedral goes from perfect hands to tips. When roof peters out it is possible to continue up Original Route face or back up and left on grassy ledge/flake system.
Cougar Crag West. The Black Arch is obvious right trending black arch in the middle of the main wall. It starts just right of the Dirty Dihedral.
