Interstate park has several small crags within a short distance of eachother featuring short to moderate length bolted routes. The area is east facing and at a higher elevation so it makes for a nice venue on hot summer days in early afternoon.

The rock quality appears chossy at times but is more or less quite solid and well traveled. The routes are also rated extremely generously in the entire area. The ratings will be listed as they appear the Bruce guide but count on them being at least a number grade soft.

Getting There 

Start from the trail leading to Gritscone, Gunshow etc, and continue past Gritscone for a short distance until there is a well traveled right turn off the trail. Continue down this trail past a small talus field and a short uphill section until you reach an obvious small bolted cliff section, this being Headlight Point.
