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.

Keep yourself together when the feet disappear (or lichen renders them useless) and yo...[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
