  • Situated on crown land, this area is a pretty secluded and pristine area to climb in, with over 150 problems established, ranging from v0 to v13. Climbers should be prepared to be without cell service, but know that there is a hospital in town. The development of The Nooks was intentionally performed so as to leave the area as natural and wild as possible. This enables climbers to enjoy a unique experience and keeps the natural elements as much as possible. Please respect the area, follow all Leave No Trace ethics, and stay on existing trails.
