About Hen's Nest:

Mostly trad climbs in a secluded area. Unfortunately a few of the classics are closed by the USFS for research. Bring webbing to replace anchors. This place doesn't get frequented, so most of the slings will be old.
Approach: Park at the single lane concrete bridge on 715, same as Wall of Denial, Eagle Point, etc... On the south side of the bridge, cross the road from the parking lot and hike down hill towards the river. Follow a faint trail along the river for about 30 minutes. The river should be on the right side and you should be heading downstream. There is a lot of dead fall, but keep hugging the river bank occasionally moving up hill to avoid obstacles. When you can see the orange wall, continue on the trail for another few minutes, then turn left and head uphill near a pine tree grove.
