Jay Knower sticks the crux of The Avenger.


A nice crag with a good mix of sport and gear routes. Receives morning shade 'til around 2pm, making it a nice morning spot in the summer.

Getting There 

Park at the start of the Lincoln Creek Road. Follow the western river bank upstream until a small marked trail breaks right. Head uphill on the trail through the woods, eventually trending right to reach the crag's base. Per Josh Gross: go over bridge take a trail to the left along river follow cairns up and right for 20 minutes.
