Sean on a boulder by the 2nd pullout.


Quartzite rock, not too chossy, just kind of gritty. Or granite, according to others...

The approach isn't pleasant, especially if you end up on a goat trail and a lot of the routes aren't very well traveled, but if you have time it's worth exploring.

The weather is best in the summer, hit and miss in the spring and fall.

Camping can be found at "The Mudhole" between memorial and labor day, otherwise your best bet is Riley Creek campground just east of the crag.

Getting There 

Right on Highway 2 just past Priest River, right before the town of Laclede.

Pass the first big road cut and then take the pull out on the left, a half mile down is another pull out as well.

I have been looking at road construction cut-outs in a different way ever since I started climbing. These are cool, creative bolted lines up the drill marks right off the road. So why didn't I find anything going up the 'natural' lines in the woods beyond the vertical road routes? Are you all developers still working on this? Next time I guess I will need a belayer as all I had was my harness, shoes, and chalk. Nice work, great scenery.

Don't know if those new group of climbers ever showed up. Overgrown trails and lichen on alot of routes. That being said this is a good crag that needs more love than it gets. Under that lichen are some good routes.

I added the East Pullout to Google Maps, so it's easier to locate for first-timers & out-of-towners like myself. Google "East Pullout, Laclede Rocks" and it should come up for you.

Also a heads up, we'll be hosting a Scouting event over the week of Aug. 9th, 2015, with two groups of 40 scouts at the East Pullout per day. We anticipate running 6 routes and finding room for 4 rappel lines as well. Obviously it's a public area so we aren't under the delusion that we get to reserve it or anything, but I wanted to make climbers aware that it will be a high traffic situation, so if you're looking for some solitary climbing, this might not be the week for it...
