into the upper moves


On SE corner of pillar: start with left hand on large pinch, work your feet up and get small crimp on face, get your left hand up, hike feet and throw for good hold up and left. A classic DL hard problem! Easier for the tall in my opinion.


Main attraction at the Amazing Pillar.

I have to agree with Eric. It has awesome movement and the rock friction only gets better higher up. Get on this thing! It is worth the hike!

i normally shy away from giving my opinion on a line that has already received good, accurate comments. but this one is an exception. go do this climb. one of the best at the lake; certainly, the best v6.
