      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

McCall area beta

Recommended Posts

My wife and I will be driving back from the city of rocks in 3-4 weeks and will be coming back thru McCall. We would like to camp in that area and maybe stop for a hike or quick climb, to get a feel for the area and see if we want to come back for a longer visit. The city really suits my wife's taste, lots of 8's and 9's, amenities nearby and killer driveup camping. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

I don't know about pay sites, but the FS road has a bunch of nice bivy sites. There's also a bunch of smaller spires that people have been developing the last few years...

Drederek: PM McCall Boater. He'll know the best places for sure, including for what is near Slick Rock. He's fairly active here on CC, and likely hasn't seen your OP yet.

Slick Rock definitely looks worthy, is there any camping nearby?

There is good primitive camping off of Lick Creek Road, with vault toilets and water (lake fork campground). Or as mentioned Lick Creek road has lots of wide spots that are suitable for a night's sleep. About 20 minutes away, Ponderosa State Park has showers and is basically in McCall for beer and ice cream.

 

I just did the Regular Route on Slick Rock at the beginning of August and found it to be super fun!

Thanks Steve for the shout out, but I'm glad Splattski responded, he being the local fount of knowledge, born from much experience. Check out his website for all things Idaho and beyond. That said, Drederek, I'll also be at the city for the climbing festival, so if you want to climb in McCall afterward, look me up.

Thx again for the replies and especially the link to Splattski's voluminous site. I'm sure we will have a good time on our way thru at the end of next week.
