The Grove lies behind these trees.


Use the same approach as Strategery Wall. This is an East-facing wall with a stand of pines at the base of the crag. There are currently 7 existing lines.

Getting There 

Two roads access the canyon, one on each side of the creek. The West road deadends just below The Prow. An improvised footbridge crosses the creek at the last pullout before the end of the road. Cross the footbridge and follow the trail downstream along the creek. Pass a large break in the cliff above that is filled with aspens. A short way down the trail, you'll see a boulder capped with orange lichen. Turn right here and hike up the hill, following the climbers trail. The Grove is about 100 feet right of Strategery Wall.

The trail is faint and zig-zags a lot as the hill is very steep. There are a few cairns on the way up, but the trail basically ambles right. One arrives at the base of the first 2 climbs in the Grove, the rest of which are to the left. The Strategery wall is to the left.
