Campfire Crag Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Campfire Crag
is the massive formation to the west of Pixie Rock
that despite it's size and wealth of routes has but a fraction of the traffic the Feudal Wall, Short Wall and Pixie Rock get, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Climbing is found on both the south and north faces, with the south-facing routes a good choice on cold, windy days and the northerly aspect nice on those warmer days.
Make a right at Billboard Buttress
and take the road heading right (west) to some day use parking at the eastern end of the wall. The approach takes anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes depending upon which portion of the crag you visit.
