BETA PHOTO: Andy Cook Wall as seen from the ridge before you h...
A good wall to for climbing almost any time of the year. NW facing so it gets shade almost all morning even during the summer.
Great if you like steep sport routes in the 5.11-5.12 range. Almost all of the routes were put up some time ago, and it look like the voids are being filled in by someone as we saw at least two newer routes. You are guaranteed that you will see few people if you are willing to make the hike. It is not bad at all, but further than most roadside climbers want to hike.
Interesting side note: the "Andy Cook" graffiti on top of the wall actually says "Randy Cook".
Park at the small pull out just before Green Slabs (there is a culvert). Hike up the steep drainage for awhile until you can exit right onto solid slabs that lead gradually towards the ridge. You will see Panorama Wall above you and to the left. As you near the ridge you will pass the Pumphouse on your right. At the Ridge the red wall becomes visible.

Does anyone have info on the routes not listed either here or in the guidebook?
- Between Rain and Queer. Climbs right facing corner to face. Large hole down low. May not have proper anchors.
- Between Queer and Malt Liquor Man. Listed as the Open Project in Squeezing The Lemmon II. Cold shuts.
- Between Malt Liquor Man and Too Steep For You Know Who. Climbs dihedral to shared anchors.
- Tag Team is listed without a rating in the guidebook. Any estimate on the difficulty?

I believe I left my CU belay specs at this crag two weeks ago (Sat, Nov 8). They are likely at the base of Malt Liquor Man. If you come across them please let me know. Thanks.
