Please refrain from climbing in House Party cave as it has been closed until further notice. Formerly known as Squaw Creek. NO VISIBLE CHALK shall be left on the boulders. Brush your ticks and chalk marks or use color matching chalk. Access is delicate and the utmost concern should be given to leaving no trace.

ADMIN NOTE: Please note that access has been problematic here in the past, and local climbers are encouraged to keep a really low profile... It is a culturally sensitive area and could easily be shut down like the house cave was if people start ticking holds and trampling out vegetation with heavy padding. So please, please use caution and refrain from using chalk when possible, and brush your chalk off when done, and keep a low profile, and pick up after yourself! This place could easily be shut down if not taken care of.

Getting There 

Due access issues, directions have been removed for the time being. If you know where it is, please be aware that this area is being watched by the FS for excessive use of chalk, pads and wear and tear. Please tread carefully.

Climbing Season

The Administrator's note is spot on for this place. A few months ago some kids trundled a few tire size boulders into the river and it turned into a federal investigation. Tho they most likely were not climbers, this is an example of how this area is being managed. So tred lightly near the river and river trail.
