Upper Broadloaves - North Rock Climbing
The very northern end of the Breadloaves, home to a handful of crack climbs.
To descend, there is a hard to find 5.3 scramble on the right (facing the crag) or rap from slings at the top of Interceptor; this rap is less than 100' but I don't know if it is less than 80'.
Park at the waterpump, then walk around on the road to the west side of the UBL, then follow a short (100'?) trail and weave among some boulders to get to the climbs.

If your feet are getting cold, go right onto Tide Country (10b). Otherwise, place a high pi...[more] Browse More Classics in ID
