Just climbed HCP for the first time last weekend. Great location for beginning climbers and those working on their lead skills for sport and trad.
John M. (caretaker) explained that he's set up a progression for easing into sport leading:
1 - start on the BIG sloped boulder he calls 'the slab' (just upstream from the picnic area at Heavens Stairs, beside the creek) There are a series of bolts up the face where you can practice clipping in while walking up the slope, then practice setting up your rappell back down.
2 - there is a vertical face to the right of Heavens stair with 3 ledges and a bolt at each ledge.
3 - Just inside the big crack to the left of the stairs, going up the left side of the 'nose' is what John called "Country Boy Can Survive" (also called 'Cosmic Thing' on this site) Nice big holds and a good place to try out the sport lead skills...
Ask John about it when you pay your $3 entry fee!

|Are the routes easy to figure out which ones are which? It's been awhile, but I've been there one before to bike, but not climb. I'm hoping to take our youth group there in a couple of weeks to climb.|
