Your opinion of this PAGE:    [0 people like this page.]


The largest part of Flatrock containing the vast majority of climbs including the longer routes and a few two pitch climbs towards the northern end. The area receives morning sun and the temperature can change dramatically without the sun if the wind is blowing.

Getting There 

Park at the pull-off on Wades Lane and walk back along the road to the ATV trail before the houses as in the attached picture. When you meet the main trail cross straight over to a trail down the other side. This trail leads down to some loose rock that you need to scramble down to reach the face which stretches north from the bottom of the trail.

NOTE: The old trail directly above the pull off has recently been marked with private property signs. Please avoid using this trail to prevent potential access issues. The new trail is just as easy, if not a little easier anyway.

Drop the Mental Ledge and "Angry Birds" ...

Angry Birds 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  North America : Canada : ... : Main Face
This is an excellent, hard climb up one of the cleanest faces in Flatrock. It starts on the ledge on top of P1 of Drop the Mental (5.9 trad).Start at the left side of the big ledge. Climb to a small ledge 3 feet above the belay ledge and step right to a bolt (easy but a little creepy, optional hand sized cam here). The climb weaves up the face from here on interesting moves. There is a 2 bolt anchor with no rap hardware after 65 feet of climbing. Above here is very dirty 5.6 climbing leading eve...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
