Kristen Moon on Chimney in The Grotto.


This is a great area to head to in the heat of the day. It is located down near the water and almost always receives shade. There is also a cave/chimney that cool air is usually blowing out of.

Getting There 

From the parking lot start on the trail towards Post Wall. Just before going down the hill near the river turn right and cut back towards the dam on a trail. The trail will switchback down to the water. The wall is down near the water.

This line is one of my favorite moderates at Q'emiln Park. Plus this climb is always in the shade and a great place to go on a hot afternoon. The rock is a bit more smooth and polished than other areas in the park but the climbing is super fun. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
