Deep Creek


Steep sandstone sport climbing with slopers and bouldery movement that will test your power endurance. Great warm weather crag.


Steep sandstone sport climbing nestled in a dense canopy with ample swimming holes nearby. Seeps heavily in winter but is a great summer climbing location as the creek stays fairly cool and main walls come into the shade in early afternoon.
