Granite towers about ten miles north of Stanley. Beautiful location above salmon River, gets sun and shade depending on time of day. Good quality rock, with 8 established climbs from 5.7-5.10+

Getting There 

Drive north of Stanley on highway 75 for about ten miles. You will pass the sunbeam hot springs on your right. About half a mile downstream, the road makes a sharp left bend, look for a small pullout on the right, easy to miss. There is also a small turn out here which drops off the road to a sweet little camp/ parking spot right next to the river. This is at mile post 202. Carefully cross the highway and scramble up onto a bench with lots of boulders. Hike up main gully in front of you to get to the penthouse or skirt right to get to the road kill crag. See accompanying mud map.

This fine outing climbs the main face ( facing highway)of the penthouse pillar. Start just right of center below some cracks. Clip a bolt and move up a short face, clip another bolt then into the crack, good #2/3 camalot here. A long sling is advisable then move left out through the bulge, bolt , and onto the face above. Move left and up, bolt, pass a flake on right then up,to under cling flake and another bolt. Move left slightly to base of crack, then up it with a couple good small to me...[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho
