Featured edge climbing on mostly vertical limestone (or lime-silicate rock), many of which start from a ledge system offering a slightly exposed feel. Overall, this is a great crag consisting of many routes in the 5.10 range.

Getting There 

Drive West from the Mazama General Store (Lost River Road) until the road turns to gravel. Continue on this road until an obvious cliff band is seen on the right side of the road with a scree slope below. If you travel over the single lane bridge (Robinson Creek), you have gone too far. An approach trail is marked by a cairn. More specific details to come ...

A fabulous climb on the left side of the Nugget Wall. The first 30 feet is amazing face climbing, which is technical with great movements. There's a good rest before moving into the groove at the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Washington

This is not limestone...but lime-silicate rock.

Many of the routes towards the right end of the crag are wet in early season. That said, there are still plenty to choose from. The crag is good for cooler days and can be pretty miserable on warm, sunny days.

The route Juggernaut on Recess Wall is NOT 6 bolts, I could not find the anchors and did not have enough draws to continue to the top. I was using the old Mazama guidebook.

Route Juggernaut shares the anchors with the line next to it (Rainwater) but it is not very obvious from the top of Juggernaut, would recommend finding the anchor before climbing.

Added "The Butler Did It" between Leland's Eleven and Golden Boy. A worthy route that is clean and pretty safe, despite '08 guidebook description.
