I went up to Haycock last Saturday and was unpleasantly suprised. I had heard of Haycock being hard to navigate but i must be missing on something. Ispent a good 2hours looking around and found maybe 4 actull cliamble boulders. What gives?

I would suggest getting someone who knows their way around Haycock to take you. I have only been there once or twice a couple years ago, or else I would try and help you out more. What I do remember from Haycock is lots of walking to the climbing, and lots of walking in between climbing. All the boulders are pretty far apart and hard to find.

Sounds like Haycock alright. I have only been there three or four times and I still have trouble finding routes. It's best to head up there with someone who knows where the routes are. I don't go to Haycock without my GPS.

It's a pretty big part and things can be pretty stretched out. I went with a friend of mine who considers haycock his home he used to climb with the guy that wrote the guide. Check out the guide it's pretty good. A good part depends on where you park too. If you can find hanger 18 I've spent whole days only there. If you go on the weekends there are usually a lot of climbers around one can probably point you in the right direction if you can't find something.
