Bolting the Abyss. Summer 2013


A nice mostly shady wall with routes from 5.10- to 5.13. Routes tend to be generally pocketed and overhung. Routes not to be missed include Pool Boy (10b), Fluffer (10a), Knuckle Sauce (12a), The Abyss (12d), and Adult Swim (13a). This is a great summer crag.

Getting There 

From the parking lot cross the creek on the wooden bridge and follow the road for several minutes. Cross a small creek and take the next road that branches left shortly after. Follow this road till it forks. Take the left fork and follow it up a short steep hill that is extremely rutted out. Shortly after you conquer this hill you will see an obvious trail on your left. The trail meets the cliff at the main cave containing the routes the abyss, adult swim, and heavy seas.
