rock climb - dogwood - October 23, 2014
Super easy approach and late sun make for a great late season climbing area. Please bring helmet and headlamp. Let's plan on 5pm but I'll be there earlier depending on work. Great area for the beginners (5.5 to 5.9-) with a few challenging routes on the eastern wall (5.11a to 5.13a). Almost all if not all can be top roped. There are 5 bolted routes on the western end of the wall; 5.8 being the easiest and getting harder as you go left or east. Also on this end there are 2 or 3 sets of chains to set up top ropes, the climbing is probably about 5.5 to 5.7. There are some trees you can use as well for anchors, bring long runners. The harder climbing is located about 200-300 yards upstream or east. The hardest of the bunch, a 5.13a, is the only bolted route on this end. And a good place to give your rope a bath.
