Description 

This area is the crag/amphitheater including Whiteman falls and the surrounding mixed climbs.


Getting There 

In early season, you can drive South on Highway 40, turn left at Opal Creek Road and drive 200M to park at the Opal Creek bridge. From this parking area in early season, the approach is only 15 minutes up the Opal Creek drainage including a couple short low angle snow/ice steps. During winter closure, drive Hwy 40 South until the winter road barrier (closed after Dec. 1st at King Creek). 5K ski/hike/snowshoe one way from winter closure parking along Hwy 40 South until the left hand turn to access Opal Creek.
