Roadside attraction. Basaltic columns with a seasonal waterfall. Hard looking starts. A seasonal waterfall courses right of most lines. Very short walk from parking lot. Worth checking out on evening before or after a Castle Crags expedition for an out-of-towner. Most locals rarely climb here. Nice setting though. Claim to fame: Supposedly Yates put-up on of the bolted lines here.

Getting There 

Ask around in Dunsmuir California. Just off the west side of I-5. North of Castle Crags

Climbing Season

For the Northeast California area.

Info from Mark Rodell:

Area is actually called Hedge Creek Falls.

There is one excellent crack climb of about 60 feet. It is mid 5.10.
Because the rock is frail I always used a top rope.
Some did aid there and hurt the rock.
There is another crack that is a bit easier but worth doing.
