Climb up face using crack sometimes. Belay at large tree. move up right and then head left into very shall ridge and belay near end of ridge. Climb directly up to shallow ceiling go through into v-groove to the top. This is the first climb on Conehead I know of. It is a cliff that most rock climbers hate because of lichen, weak wood like rock flakes and dirty top offs.

A few of us love it, a very few! Therefore my ratings will be tuned to the drum of an audience of participants, that would believe one star for any climb on it would be to high a rating for the cliff. I finished leading the climb in a snow storm.


Cone Head Mt- Begin at the central lowest place on the cliff where it meets the land.


Stoppers and tri-cams up to medium size. Doesn't accept pitons because cracks are very shallow.
