About Slick Rock:

Slick Rock contains some of the longest continuous technical rock climbing in Idaho. Set in the awesome alpine environment of the Payette National Forest, Slick Rock routes range from eight to ten pitches, and vary in difficulty from 5.6 to 5.10+. Some routes can be a bit run out so be sure you know what you're getting on before you start climbing. Use care when crossing Lick Creek. The creek can swell in spring time. Rising as much as eight inches in a day and running very fast.
Nearest town or city: McCall
Directions: From town take the road to Ponderosa State Park. A few miles down this road, turn right on the road that goes east to Lake Fork Campground and Lick Creek Summit. Continue past Lake Fork Campground until Slick Rock comes into view on your left. Park in the pull-out at the Slick Rock signpost, cross the creek and it is a 15 minute hike to the base of the climb.
