Christmas Crag is a nice, single pitch crag with several fun lines. The rock is located in Four Mile and has a sizeable chimney splitting the middle of it. We had a great day climbing here on Christmas, hence the name. Also, there is some fantastic bouldering around in the area.

Getting There 

Drive up towards Four Mile, and take a right just before reaching Split Rock. Follow this road across a stream, up a hill, across a field, and take a left immediately after a cow grate. Park on the right, shortly after taking this left turn. The rock should be obvious on the right side of the street. Walk up to it.
