You walk across private land to enter this area. The landowner has been tolerant so long as we don't disturb his land or his cattle. To keep a good relationship with him it is extremely important that climbers don't mess with grassing cattle, and that ALL GATES STAY AS THEY ARE FOUND. Also, the large gate on the north side of the parking area MUST NOT BE BLOCKED IN ANY WAY; the farmer regularly uses this gate as he drives a truck pulling a large trailer, so the road leading to said gate MUST STAY CLEAR by least 40 feet on all sides, including the road perpendicular to it (running east-west). If the parking area is full, drive past the bridge and park on the next pullout (not far), and NEVER BY THE GATE.
Please be respectful and keep this access open to climbers. Use posted photos for this area to familiarize yourself with where parking is and is not allowed. Access to all gates must remain available to a truck and trailer. Parking in any way that restricts access to the gates north of the highway will jeopardize access for climbing.
A gentle ramp with the first two bolts leaves you just at the base of the angle change where the climb becomes overhung for the next fifty feet. Grab abundant underclings, pockets, and a few poor edges as you decipher two distinct crux sections with cryptic sequencing. Above these the angle eases again for the final bolt and run to the anchors.
There is very little opportunity to rest through the meat of this climb (bolts 5-9), so bring your fitness and be prepared to make a few tough clips. This is a great route.
