I have a guide to this area.


Welcome to the Willow Creek Rock Climbing Guide. There are many
great climbs for all abilities. The number after the grade is the number
of possible alternative climbs off one set of top bolts.
Besides the traditional climbing grades, we have our own grades.
Middle, Spicy and Hot. Middle climbs are usually in the 5.5 to 5.7
range , and the Hot climbs are in the 5.11+ range but what is a Spicy
climb? A Spicy climb can be of any grade. It is not how hard of climb
but how enjoyable the climb is. Like the culture around the areas good
enjoyable times with family and friends.

Most of the climbs are on the old rail road cuts, built around 1910. So many of the
climbs are named after rail road terms. See the Railroad glossary for definitions.

This is a wild climbing area wearing helmets is a must if
you are climbing in the canyon.
