Climbing on Campfire Crag.

Campfire Crag is the massive formation to the west of Pixie Rock that despite it's size and wealth of routes has but a fraction of the traffic the Feudal Wall, Short Wall and Pixie Rock get, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Climbing is found on both the south and north faces, with the south-facing routes a good choice on cold, windy days and the northerly aspect nice on those warmer days.

Getting There 

Make a right at Billboard Buttress and take the road heading right (west) to some day use parking at the eastern end of the wall. The approach takes anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes depending upon which portion of the crag you visit.

Campfire Crag, although massive and of a good height, tends to have very few high quality routes, as most involve scraping up some grainy nondescript fissure or face climbing on rock akin to baked oatmeal; the exception is the north side of the rock - where the better rock is found.This climb starts off a ledge some 40' up and is usually approached via another climb - Klingon Pizza (5.6), which can be third classed easily as the crux is down low.
