"Place a nut or two down low then clip em' to the perfect belay ledge (rap anchors). Wander up the slabs above to the handline ledge, the up the classic overhangs to the top (rap anchors)." Excerpt from Crest Creek Rock Climbs (Barner, Rankin).


In Lakeside Complex/Lakeside Crags.
Park at day use area (signs for Crest Crags) on the South of Hwy 28 (Gold River Hwy). Follow the trail past the picnic tables and bear left when you reach a fork.

Route is the right-most route on Joint Wall and starts on an arete just out of the trees.

Don't forget to bring your towel for a dip in Crest Lake, only a stone's throw from the base of the crag.


Two to three nuts at the start.
Rap anchors at both belay positions.
  • Consider an oppositional anchor at the first belay if falling at the overhang above is a possibility.
