I only say it because it needs to be said; DO NOT climb on wet rock here. We have worked too hard as a community to save this land. If you arrive and the rock is wet, or even the slightest bit damp, walk away from it. Do something else, go somewhere else. Don't be the person that didn't heed that warning and breaks a hold because you were impatient. We now have a parking lot at the end of Old Wagon Rd. Go down Old Wagon Rd, continue straight on the gravel road to the locked gate, use the code 0515 to open the gate, lock it behind you going in and out. There is an obvious trail from the parking lot to the old angle road, when you get there, go left downhill. You'll see a trail go off to the right, that leads towards the River Boulder. Or, continue on to the left to approach the Warmup Wall and Pocket Hercules area. Many other problems and areas not on this map. Only going with what I know for sure. Someday, more beta will be shared by those in the know. Have fun, be safe, respect this area. It took more work than you know by more people than will be credited for us to be able to climb here today. Thank you to those who came before me, I'm forever indebted to your efforts.  The Warmup Wall. Go left, go right, go in circles... so many holds to choose from. Some obvious lines when chalk is present. Right top out is easier than left top out. Probably all go V2-3? This rock sees no sun when trees are in bloom and takes forever to dry. If you're not catching the theme here, let me repeat: don't climb on wet rock here!  Heading up to ledge.  Traversing from sit start.  Lynn on Pocket Hercules; V7. Start hold broke 2014, not sure if it changed grade. Sit start, big move to sharp pocket, bigger move to sharper pocket, then the fun begins. Left variation is Left of Hercules or Hercules Left or something; V4. Similar start, move left through obvious chalked holds and mega pocket. Do not climb wet rock! This problem is a clear example of what will happen if you do. Wet sandstone breaks. Damp sandstone breaks. Leave it alone. Go somewhere else! Don't know history of these problems.
