BETA PHOTO: Old Peculiar's corner. Many routes start here.


Located in the big corner of Old Peculiar Wall, Old Peculiar-the climb-ascends a fractured crack. Left of the crack Old Peculiar Wall faces the lake and right of the crack the wall faces straight left.

Most of the climbing is very easy, but the crux involves a brief section of off-width where the left-facing wall will come in hand.


Most placements are straightforward. Pro .5" to 5". At the top there are a few old pieces of webbing with a couple of rap rings.

To set up a top rope, walk around the left side of Old Peculiar Rock. The top of the route is easy to find because it is located in the corner. Large cams can also suppliment the webbing anchor.

It was kind of a filthy pile when we put it up. I hope it's cleaner now.

I found this climb to be really awkward and mossy, yet somehow I still managed to have a lot of fun. Okay but not great looking webbing with biners at top. I backed it up with 1-3 inch cams. I found a #4 to be useful on this climb.
