Along the Cliff
This popular section of cliff has a wide variety of climbing, ranging from the very-easy (Betty
) to the classic 5.10s of P38
, Stirrup Trouble
, and beyond.
The end of this section is the major left-facing chimney system of Big Chimney and Miss Bailey
. Those routes are just left of the lightning-bolt offwidth crack of Baby
: The trail along the base of these routes starts just a few feet past the vault toilet ("Uberpooper") that marks the end of the Uberfall section. There is a trail up to the middle of this section just past the Black Boulder problem, and the last few routes are also reached by the trail leading to Baby
: The Uberfall Descent
finishes in a dead heat with rapping from the clifftop - you can walk off and be back at your packs just as quickly as rapping. On busy weekend days, the Uberfall Descent
is preferable - especially for the Betty
areas, where many intermediate ledges are strewn with small stones, and unsuspecting newer climbers are often below.
There is a set of bolts with chains at the ledge above the first pitches of Jackie

Chimney a few moves, then stay left on the face following a fracture, using the back wall for stemming as well. The route Big Chimney stays in the chimney to the right.
