Concentrating on Slabariffic

Remember to fill out a wilderness permit, even if climbing for the day! MORE INFO >>>


This secluded area has a number of good problems with a variety of climbing. Power is present with Power Windows, delicate with Slabariffic, highball with Somewhere in Time, and frustrating with Tomahawk.

Some of the rock is questionable, but it shouldn't detract from your enjoyment.

Getting There 

This area lies just before The Beach, on the right hand side as you approach. Allow 20-30 mins.
