Secret Knowledge Overkill

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


Great for the crowd-evading, gear guru, SKO starts with a committing and delicate set of moves over a small bulge that lead to the crux at a roof, tiptoe left of this flap and follow the vertical fracture straight up to a tree. Short but sweet, this route has consistent, balancey moves up a thin face~!!

Secret knowledge not a must, crux spewing beta: overkill.


Currently isolated from the large concentration of routes, Secret Knowledge Overkill is 100 feet left of Sport Climbing is Neither. Its the first most significant shield of rock directly left of a small roof and directly under another small roof.


A light, single rack up to three inches. A set of slings around a tree allow a rappel/lower back to the ground.

I'd say its more than 100 feet from other climbs. Easiest to spot via trees on top.
