Comments: Shame about the bolts.... This is a very nice face climb and would have been a very fun lead...

Comments: I'm calling this the Bushwhack Boulder. The crack up the center is fun and about 5.6.

Comments: The bugs are so bad here in summertime that I won't return until fall. I was able to locate more good problems and even two short trad lines in my last few visits before the black flies and Mosquitos chased me out. Should make a good winter destination for mid week training sessions....

Comments: IME gave me a printed topo with several moderate routes listed but I lost it in the last move. I do recall them mentioning a "really good" 5.6-5.7 slab route approximately up the center of the cliff...

Comments: I don't remember there being much pro for the first 35 feet of climbing but this is certainly one of the better 5.6 climbs in the Trapps. Makes for a nice approach to the last pitch of High E when the area is packed with guides on the weekend. This route is often empty!

Comments: Did a nice little trad route on the steep buttress. Good pro and pumpy moves on an overhanging face following a zig zagging crack. About 40 feet high with some loose rock toward the top. Cams and small nuts sewed it up. Maybe 5.8.

Comments: Extra thanks to the WMCC and the Access Fund who recently did a lot of trail work at Farley! Excellent work! Finally made it back out here the other day for a very enjoyable day of climbing.

Comments: For the super-strong there are some hard, overhanging highball problems about 30 ft. high to the right of this climb. A steep wall which leads up to a rounded, overhanging bulge. If I ever get out there again, I will grab more pictures.

Comments: As far as I know, it is state land as the Mid-State trail follows the crest of the hill that makes up the crag. It is also mentioned in Boston Rocks, with very limited information.

Comments: No. That is Redemption Crag. This cliff has been overlooked constantly for what I can only figure to be the perception that it is a crumbling pile of crap. We've found a few decent climbs though, and one is actually quite good, with pumpy moves and decent pro.

Comments: Checked this area out today. Interesting bit of rock... and much better than nearby Lookout Rock. Also found some smaller crags and boulders. Dirty due to local teenagers littering the bottom with PBR empties. Slab was mostly really easy, but there are some steep sections halfway up which offer some more difficult routes. Graffiti kinda detracts from what would otherwise be a nice and clean piece of rock. Rock quality was generally excellent. Will be bringing the rack next time. Didn't see the o... more >>

Comments: Protection is adequate for a safe lead to the chains. There are several excellent horizontals for small cams, with decent stances for making the placement. Camp Tri-Cams work great on this route!

Comments: A fall while pulling the roof would not be good. You would certainly hit the ledge before anything could catch you.

Comments: I believe this cliff has been overlooked primarily because of loose rock; however, there is some fun climbing to be had here for the safety conscious climber.

Comments: A local climber told me about this place several years ago, but I have never made it out there. Is access prohibited, or just difficult/long? Would love to check it out soon.
