Electric Avenue Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Electric Avenue
A striking formation near the north entrance of the Reserve, Electric Avenue
is somewhat of a test piece area with stout climbing and spacious protection. Three traditional lines exist, including the crag's showstopper and namesake
. The remainder of the lines are bold, solid, sport routes.
This crag gets morning shade and afternoon sun; it can get very warm in the afternoon and lack it's well needed friction, plan accordingly during the warm months. Electric Avenue
lies on private property and so far the landowner has been more than generous by allowing climbing. Keep a low profile when visiting this crag and possibly consider another area if it is already occupied. This works as there are only two fixed anchors on the west face shared by four/five of the most popular routes.
When entering the City of Rocks from Almo, hang a right at the fork in the road. Drive into the reserve towards the obvious and popular Elephant Rock
, the crag is found here on the right side of the road. You can park at Elephant Rock
and walk 5 minutes or pull off the road closer to the crag at a designated pull-out. Follow the path of least resistance to the base of the crag.
