Area Description 

A large and varied rock with most of its routes located on the northeast side. Multi-faceted, this three dimensional crag has some amazing cracks and long, sustained routes. Plenty of lines can be found here and many options exists on the west, east, south and north faces. Shade can be had on any hot summer day. Heavily featured, this area has a high concentration of cracks and mixed lines. Tall, a 70 meter rope is necessary or bring two lines. Quality lines, quality rock!

Found just southwest of the Comp Wall, Bracksiek's Pillar is an excellent all day climbing destination. Routes range from 5.7 to 5.12a and climbing varies from slab to face pulling to finger and hand cracks.

Approach time is about 30 minutes from the Ranch House.

Bracksiecks Pillar lies southwest of the Comp Wall and is an excellent all day climbing destination. It has numerous routes that have been placed during the past years and has many choices of routes on the west, east, south and north faces; ie: you can chase the shade on any hot summer day and enjoy quality rock! I believe there are ~14 routes on the pillar ranging from 5.7 to 5.12a. Climbing varies from slab style friction to pulling on large patina flakes to finger/hand cracks to flared off-width depending on the route you chose. New route info can be acquired from the local climbing ranger if you seek him out.
