Morphine Ledge Rock Climbing
|Top rope ban in effect; DO NOT SLING THE CEDARS.|
This is an imposing wall with a variety of trad and mixed lines.
This area is at the north end of Mt. Nemo. From the parking lot, walk to the outlook. Turn left. Walk north for ~10-15 minutes. You will come to a rocky section in the trail, which is protected by a chain handrail. Just after after this, look right, and you will see a series of terraces that you can walk down. This is the descent. Once you descend, walk south. Pass the Big Gulp and Camel sections. You will come to an imposing wall with large overhangs. This is Morphine Ledge.
