searching out the beta passing the second bolt on ...

Since 2011, the Access Fund Conservation Team has completed 114 stewardship projects, constructed over 35,000' of trail, built 106 rock staircases, & trained 3,000+ volunteers. Join or give and MP will match!


sustained awesomeness starting with slab, slopers, jugs and ends with a good bouldery top out. (26 meters, 60 meter rope with stretch is perfect)

this route may be the only route at Paynes Ford that is a proclaimed classic that is under 5.11. this is a must do for any/all level of climber, use it as a warm up or a goal, fantastic!

On the bathroom wall at Hangdog Camp there's a list of those who have climbed Temples of Stone naked... I'm proud to have joined the club ;)

Granted, my sister belaying me would have had a bad time.
