Upper Noir, Directions & Part I

Another perspective on the same area.

Make a left on West Camino Cielo from the 154. Drive across a short bridge and park in the turnout on the right. Walk back towards the bridge and cut down into the river. Follow the river until you see a rock outcropping on the right. If you get to the Lower Noir Boulders you have gone too far. Climb up the hill and skirt the base of the rock outcropping.

In the middle of main area, is a short problem:
Red, Easy - SDS, climb up the arete

Adjacent to that boulder are three high balls:

Continue up the ridge and past the bolted arete, to a this slab:
Black, Easy - SDS, climb face

At the top of largest of rock formation is another problem:
Purple, Hard - SDS on large holds, move up and left to the arete, slopping top out
