Oak Creek Over Look
About Oak Creek Over Look:
Huge tourist trap so get there early. Tourist area is CLOSED TO CLIMBING! Climb to the north of the bathrooms to avoid rocks falling down on you.
Be careful when setting up rappels and top ropes. There is a lot of loose rock at the top. TIE IN AND ANCHOR OFF ON THE TOP to prevent this area from being closed.
Part of an ancient lava flow from the San Fransico Peaks this great Basalt offers Lots of good cracks and more. If you are planning on top roping bring a lot of webing and some padding. This is a year round spot but it is either very cold or very hot. "No bolts" and plenty of moderate crack climbing. So please if you can't make the route, top rope it.
