NEW! The Grotto
Located just up Junction Creek Road from the Campground. Drive past the campground and park just past the sign that says “No Camping For The Next 7 Miles”. Walk down the hill towards the boulders. Most work on this area was done by Dusty Bender and Friends. More updates to come soon!
Curious if Chris Schulte’s newer problems “Yonder Goes the Light” and “Airbus” are here… I seem to remember an arete problem that resembles Yonder.

Cleaned up a crack on the back of the first big boulder you come to a few years ago. sit start makes for a good long problem. pretty unique for the area and really fun. Cool area in the summer heat! a few quality problems with lots of weird ones too if you want them. I always called the crack the Red Delicious. Any other route names out there?

there is a group of us that have been going up here for about a year now. We call it Cougar Land because the abundance of bones and sightings of cougars. plus it makes people laugh when we say that. we thought people have climbed herebut not sure. the following routes are on what we have done and are our groups first ascents and names. if anyone else knows the names or fa please inform
-the right arete after the bulge on the first problem goes around v4, but we haven’t named it FA Dan Rigney
-a traverse along the first boulder is so close to complete its hard to call it a project but we think it goes around v7 or 8
-on the left of the first boulder around the corner there is a sweet arete with a hueco. were pretty sure this one was done but we call it One Eyed Hooker and its around a v4
-Taking Lives with Oak Knives is the last picture shown. goes around v8 FA Malcolm Hillewaert (were pretty sure that we were the first to do this because we broke the holds as we went)
-plus many more projects to be completed and many more to find!

The third picture, the arete on the right side goes about V2 or so, I don’t know who did it first but it is very fun. If you keep walking down the hill there is a boulder with a V0 slab and a traverse that is a V1 or V2 on the side farthest from the road.
