Mighty Thor before the crux
Seasonal Closures in place MORE INFO >>>


This is a reorganizational entry (thanks to Micah) to help facilitate the L->R sorting, because it "really doesn't make sense when you are going pretty much around an entire rock." This subarea will include routes from the East Side.

Getting There 

Park on the east side of the formation or the main parking area. From the main parking area, walk past North Gateway Rock to South Gateway just across the paved trail. Hike up established trails to get to your route.
