A great area with some exciting routes and bouldering to boot! The Outermost Limits is home to some fun, steep lines both sport and traditional. Vertical and steep climbing with edging and ledging, a good spot to spend some time.

Getting There 

To get here, pass the 1st Butress, then cross the creek, the best place begin is where the obvious big boulder sits. This is visible from the trail and the climbing area. Once you pass the 1st Butress begin to cross the creek. The best place to cross is where the big boulder lies.

The best way to get to this wall is to cross the big downed tree over the stream. It's pretty wild and it sways when you are on it.
