Quartzite rock, not too chossy, just kind of gritty.

The approach isn't pleasant, especially if you end up on a goat trail and a lot of the routes aren't very well traveled, but if you have time it's worth exploring.

The weather is best in the summer, hit and miss in the spring and fall.

Camping can be found at "The Mudhole" between memorial and labor day, otherwise your best bet is Riley Creek campground just east of the crag.

Getting There 

Right on Highway 2 just past Priest River, right before the town of Laclede.

Pass the first big road cut and then take the pull out on the left, a half mile down is another pull out as well. The following climbing is located on the west side of the pull out.

Placing your first piece could be tricky (first crux). Then, continue up steep terrain stemming and jamming your way to easier ground and leads to a square overhang(2nd crux, 9+/10a). Climb left of the overhang making some interesting stemming moves. A few more feet brings you to a small tree and a crack. Sling the tree and plug a #1 ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho

The west pullout has some really awesome climbs. A lot of them are a little dirty and have old bolts/anchors but I think some of the best climbs in laclede are from the west pullout. It would be awesome if more people climbed here to clean up some of the routes
