Description 

Several small crags, most with chossy rock, however, the Loading Zone is clean fine grain volcanic with splitter moderate cracks. The getting there description below is to the Loading Zone.

Getting There 

From the upcoming NE Cali Climbing Guide...

From the town of Chester take Feather River Drive toward Lassen N.P. and Drakesbad (don’t head toward Juniper Lake). The first one-lane bridge you come to is called “High Bridge,” is about 5.5 miles from the town of Chester. Approximately .6 miles past this bridge, the road forks and you will follow the right fork towards Drakesbad get to Warner Valley. About 3 miles after the fork you will come to a second one-lane bridge. 1/4 mile after this second bridge, watch for a dirt road on your right. Turn onto this and make an immediate left onto a smaller dirt road (4WD recommended). Follow this 1/4 mile to the base of the cliff.

We climbed here on May 30, 2014. Great area and many moderate cracks as the description suggests. I lead what I think was a 5.7 crack (thin to wide) on the left side of the feature (perhaps Finger Crack). We TR'd from an anchor I built a slightly harder lie-back on the right (perhaps Black Crack 5.8) and a deceptively easy overhanging off width to the left (perhaps Sure Thing 5.7). There is a set of bolts on the top of the middle of the wall which allows for a TR of an overhanging jam crack/lieback - probably the most striking line when looking at the wall from below. It felt like 5.10 (perhaps Lady Fantasy?). We also TR'd an easy (5.7 - perhaps Second Street Scene) crack to the right. Plenty for lines for a trip back. See also rockclimbing.com/routes/North_....
