This formerly vaguely described area that was bundled with the Geowatt formation got a new name and sprouted a number of routes in the most recent Dave Bingham guidebook.

Bad Seed / Eviction is one of the first hunks of rocks you run into on the North Fork trail, a quiet spot to escape the crowds with a number of fun routes. Afternoon shade can be had for 4-5 of them while the Eviction sits on the W face and bakes in the sun.

Getting There 

Park at Circle Creek overlook and follow the dirt road for 10 minutes (1/4 mile) to a cattle guard. The formation will be direcly in front of you, head N on a faint trail and cross the fence to get to the base of the climb.

Looking at the Bingham topo, it's the small somewhat banana-shaped crag S and slightly E of the Geowatt double crag.

Short but powerful, this route (boulder problem?) is definitely worth doing if you're wandering around the area.A thin start on crimps brings you to hidden jugs that pepper the route through its 3 bolts. The further right you go the easier. Sticking to the bolt line is preferred and aiming for the thin diagonal crack can beef things up quite a bit....[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
