Description 

Todd Goss and a few friends found this place back in the nineties and put a few stellar routes up. Much to my liking they left a lot still to be done. Due to the short season and long approach if you have to walk from the bottom, not much action has gone on here for a long time. Last year James Huntsman and I put in some stellar lines. This is a winter area with a lot of potential. Once Todd Perkins gets psyched there I'm sure most of the awesome lines will get done. Its in the sun most of the day. Think Paradise Forks!! Lots can be done here in the harder grades, but not much to do under 5.10

Getting There 

From the south you'll need a high clearance Vehicle with a long easy hike in
From the North you'll need to ask to cross private property with a short hike and rap in

Anyone have any info on the stuff that's been done since the guidebook came out? Aaron, James, you guys have a topo?

Dow Williams has some excellent info about the crag and approach on his Summitpost page. Approach from the south via a high clearance 2WD dirt road and hike along a well defined trail down into the canyon. The cliffs aren't visible from satellite imagery, but obvious once you get to the canyon rim. Access from the north would be on private property.

Had some fun climbing here over the weekend! We had no clue what routes we were getting on though... There are clearly far more routes than posted on Mtn Proj or Summit Post. Any locals/developers care to share route names/grades? I would super appreciate it! Cool hidden basalt climbing in the sun in winter. Fun times. Thanks!
