Midnight Fright Area Rock Climbing
Home to the finest hand crack at Lightning Dome, this area is best identified by finding the slender pine that grows out of an obvious crack system; this is the namesake route of Midnight Fright.
Park at a large pullout at mile 21.1. Cross the highway to a road cut and scramble up a left trending ramp to the trail. Follow this to the base of the wall near the Fat Albert arch. Walk right about 200 feet, past a couple large Ponderosa pines to a narrow ledge with a bush. Expect 15 minutes.
There are two ways to descend from these routes:
1. A single rope rappel off a tree into the gully that faces Fat Albert.
2. Walk off to climbers right from the top and circle back around to the base.
