  • Description 

    A large batholith with single and two pitch routes on very clean granite. The south side has seen most of the development. Collins/White Lander Rock has information on many of the older established routes, but there are quite a few newer routes not in that guide.

    Getting There 

    The only legal approach is through Agate Flats road and behind Lankin Dome, passing through Point of Rocks, and then continuing on to the GSF. You pass by Haystack on the way there.

    The approach described above involves trespassing on the McIntosh Ranch and using a private bridge constructed and maintained by the McIntosh family. The ranch has asked repeatedly that climbers refrain from using their road and instead drive around and approach through Lankin Gap. Sweetwater Rocks is a sensitive area, please respect land ownership.

    Bring a land ownership map. Parking on the highway and crossing the river on a small bit of state land will allow you to access this crag.
