Parker Mountain Main Cliff Map


The first cliff area you come to, routes are generally 35ft, though many have returned to a mossy state.

When looking at the map in the photos section, be aware that both problems graded V3 are somewhere between V4 and V5 with less than ideal landings.

Two routes worth doing are Floating Point Precision and Increased Resistance.

Getting There 

Hike up the main trail from the parking lot - pass a large trail sign/kiosk, walk 30 yards further and turn right. These cliffs will be very visible, though the routes may not be easy to identify. See map for a vague idea.

If both v3s are v4-v5 why would they be rated v3?

The topos are old and I'm not sure if the original files exist for the topos. Brendan did these routes and made the topos in 2012/2013 and had no idea how strong he was getting. Upon a recent re-visit we determined they're definitely not V3. When we upload the actual routes here they'll be submitted with their actual grades.
