Resurrection Rock Climbing
Steep thin face climbing that is north facing. Bolted routes and a couple of crack climbs. The anchors have been tampered with, and are old, so be careful and use back-ups. Cool and shady.
Past the curves of Storm Mtn., on the straightaway, as you pass Gully of Higher Education. Park and cross the river, going through a nice meadow, and crossing on logs. Then hike upstream to the cliffs. AGAIN only for historical reasons. Don't really go here.

Let me clarify what might have been confusing. Resurrection Area is on private land and the landowners, concerned over liability, have closed the cliffs to climbers. Please respect their wishes.
