Summary

Spectacular climbing on stunning rock in a wild setting with great views - its pretty much the bomb up here!

Description

This area is home to some of the best problems, rock and views at Beckworth! Highballs are common and most of the noteworthy stuff up here tends to be hard.

Approach

Parking and initial walk in is as for Hillsides. When you reach the signposted fork in the hiking trail which marks the start of the hillsides area, follow the sign left towards Mt. Beckworth summit. Follow this trail until it hits the 4WD track on the ridge line, then follow the 4WD track left up the hill. Just after making a steep climb where the track forms a figure 8, the track passes through a small boulder field, with shoulder high boulders immediately on both sides. Stop here and look around, follow the cairns to get to the classroom area. The Mexico area is immediately bellow the small jagged outcrop 50m downhill and (left) of the trail.
