BETA PHOTO: The entrance corridor to Animal Biscuit Valley


If you continue past the main parking lot through the gate you’ll see a well-worn path on your right that leads up into a narrow valley lined with decent sized rocks on either side. This is Animal Biscuit Valley and hosts a number of shorter yet worthwhile climbs of various grades.

Many of the rocks here have been worn away at the base to form small scoops and caves that make for some fun bouldery starts. Notable routes in the area include BYDTHS, MDLL, the Froggatt test piece Louder (5.12+/13-) and By The Power of Greyskull (5.13+/5.14-)

Getting There 

Just past the parking area, through the gate and follow the path right.

A fantastic climb for the grade, would be a classic if a bit longer. Starts on a vertical arête and continues up the face on huge holds as the headwall falls past vertical. There’s a little bonus section thrown in at the end just to keep you honest....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
