Stegosaurus Ridge Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Birds eye view.
The sun hits the bottom of the ridge at around 10 or 11am. There is generally wind throughout the day but depending on the time it will be coming from either the west or east. Never crowded due to the fact that, as far as I know, it has never been climbed before. It is all limestone and there is a lot of variation in quality, toward the top it turns white and is quite a bit more brittle. Considering it is a new area, there is loose rock. But there are good nut and tricam placements available, but be careful, it is limestone.
From the parking lot it is .86 miles as the crow flies. It is the ridge before "the wild". It should take around 20 to 30 minutes to get there. Turn right off the trail when you get to the ridge, there should be a scree on the west side.
