Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details


Climb the face just left of a right-Facing corner (which ends at a roof). Clip a bolt at the roof, then head up to the next right-facing corner. Stem past two more bolts, and arrive at the somewhat vague upper face. Climb past 4 more bolts and a fair amount of lichen to an anchor with Mussy hooks.

There is still some loose rock and plenty of lichen, but this has the potential to be worthwhile after it cleans up a bit.

It may be 5.8, I'm not good at grading routes.

Also, the crux start can be avoided by traversing into the second bolt from the lower, right-facing corner, but this is even looser.


Just left of Mountain Rose, this is currently (7/2016) the leftmost route at the crag.


9 bolts.

Pretty fun stemming through the first 4-5bolts. After that, we cruised up the slab to the top. There are some jugs and good crimps up there, but they're difficult to spot as they're covered in lichen. Sep 25, 2016

The first half is fun through the dihedral. The rest is meh, mostly 4th Class and still covered in lichen, with one or two easy moves toward the anchor. Aug 8, 2018
