Description 

A mild approach of about 7 miles and 1,000 feet of elevation on a good trail will bring climbers to this pleasant meadowed park. With numerous interesting climbing objectives within easy reach, New Fork offers rewarding opportunities for a few days of cragging on some very appealing formations. The spires and cliffs on the west side of the valley are the most alluring, with the dramatic higher of two towers, named the Frenzic Fang by the first ascent party, a classic pinnacle that's seldom climbed. The guidebook utilizes the somewhat overworked and hackneyed name "The Bull's Horns" for these spires. The lower of the two is a fine objective as well, and other routes ringing the Park make it a good destination for those seeking good climbing days and few other visitors.

Getting There 

The approach is easy by Winds standards and starts from the campground between the New Fork Lakes. Take the New Fork Trail without difficulty up to the Park. The trail crosses the stream twice just below the Park and can be a tricky proposition when the water's high. One may choose to skip the crossing and boulder hop along the west shore, although it's probably easier overall to make the wet crossing. Your choice.
