A sunny, south-facing crag with bolted and trad routes. There's really no shade, so it may be a good cool weather destination but could be brutal in the summer.

Getting There 

From the parking pullout walk past the Fridge Boulder on a old roadbed. Continue rightward paralleling the road, through a draw, then up steeper terrain. You will see Ski Tracks crack, pass to the right of this and up a steep gulley. Sam Hill is just to the right, above a wide flat boulder.

Climbing Season

For the Lower Icicle Canyon area.
