Rock potential of Twin Valley North.


A collection of a bunch of boulders and cliff bands. There is room for more problems but they will need some cleaning, this area can certainly use some more exploration.

Getting There 

Start from the furthest camp site on the northwest end of the twin valley campground (Site 222). Hike west along the ridgeline about 100yrds. When you see the creekbed hike down, cross the stream, and you should see a bunch of boulders strewn about in front of you.

Alternate approach: Hike out on the horse trail located 7/10 of a mile after turning off the main road enroute to twin valley campground. Look for an outcropping of rock on your right as you drop into the Valley. The are routes on both sides of the trail.

When it's early in the season, I geuss it doesn't matter too much, but it may be worth it to find an approach that doesn't go through a campsite. Especially if there's potential for a good number of problems here, then we wouldn't have to worry about campers denying us access through their site.

Good point tony. There is a horse trail that goes right by it. Problem is, it is more like a half mile hike by the horse trail. I'll post a map of the horse trail entrance. It will probably be easier to find that way anyhow.
