Might be a DWS location now - the water looks to be deep enough when the dam is full, but a few trees and logs would need to be shifted, and Icon may not aprove
A porphyry/rhyodacite crag in Pierce's Creek. The first ascentionists are dreaming about the heights here. They're more like half those listed. The photo topo lines are guesses based on the descriptions and a quick look at the cliff
Access issues inherited from Pierce's Creek
Mostly state forest, but some of the Western areas fall inside the water protection zone.
Turn off Paddys river road at the Vanities crossing sign, just before the entry to the Pierces Bouldering area.
Follow the more trafficked path to the end, turn left, then stay right. Follow the road down to the creek, ford and picnic area. Stay East of the creek, and drive down along the creek as far as you can, then get out and follow the creek down. The blackberries and scrub is thick if you try and go overland, and the descent is a bit dodgy.
Ethic inherited from Pierce's Creek
A number of problems have been established and reestablished since the fires and to a large extent climb like the original problems.
