East Face - Upper Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: East Face - Some Climbs on Both "Lower" ...
There's plenty of climbing on the upper East Face of Mt. Willard to keep you busy for a whole day.
When done for the day, you can rappel back to the RR tracks (ugh!) or top out on Upper Hitchcock or The Cleft
and follow the climbers trails up a short ways until you intersect the well-marked and heavily traveled Mt. Willard Trail. 5 minutes to the left gets you a fine view at the summit. 40 minutes (1.5 miles) to the right gets you to the train depot near the parking lot.
To access these routes most people climb Lower Hitchcock Gully
or Left Hand Monkey Wrench
. This often results in bottlenecks on these routes in the morning. I believe that one can bushwhack to the upper tier through the woods on the right of LHMW.
