I went with trango raptors 2nd gen. They're like nomics  but improved in some subtle ways according to reviews, and a brand new pair set me back for less than a pair of used nomics

Maybe try to reach out to Bayard Russel? I know he is a carpenter. Not sure if he is on here or not though.

 There are definitely No Trespassing signs and a house at the end of "Rick's Road", and the landowner (Rick Garland, I believe)  has NOT been hospitable to friends who have asked to continue past them to gain access to the crag. Perhaps others will elucidate.

My only complaint is that I thought Oliverian was going to be in there, which was one of the reasons I got it. Guess I'll have to go stick my finger in that fan again on my own. Otherwise no complaints, although as I'm mostly in the 'Daks now haven't really taken it out for a spin, though I'm eager to check out Eagle Cliff.

I've never done that but CalTopo says it's only about .5 miles from the end of Rick's Road... when you switch to satellite you can see a turn-around at the end, and what appears to be some camps. I've never driven to the end of that road but I wouldn't be surprised if it is posted as private back there... USGS map makes it look like that could be private property and not National Forest.

On the plus side river is typically really low from here to winter so you can easily cross in calf deep or shallower water...

Appreciate the effort and all the new route development that this book documents.  I would suggest more topos with routes drawn in as they are much more useful in finding climbs than written descriptions.

General Climbing / Alternative Attitash Crag Approach?

Does anyone ever approach Attitash crag in cold weather/high water by parking at the end of Rick's Road and walking north along the river?  Easy?  Bushwhack?

Whitey, It is east facing so it should get some morning sun. I don't think it gets baked by winter sun though.  If you want to go some time in colder weather let me know.  Brian
