About Banks Lake:

A vast and beautiful area with 100+ mostly bolted sport routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.13. There are numerous multi-pitch bolted routes, moderately rated. This is a great place to spend a day, weekend, or week, and it has a long season. Plenty of camping near by, and good Mexican food too.
Massive first acsent potential! A boat would be helpful to get to some of the rock. Beware of rattlesnakes in the summer. Try to take care of the area. If you climb here pack out the trash so the area stays nice. Steamboat State Park is also here though I doubt that Steamboat Rock has much potential. It is a nice hike though to get a good view at the area. This is also a great ice climbing area in the winter.
