RED WALL

Basic Training (5.8) Trad

Crowders Moun...

Description 

Look for the big crack systems in between Rising Sun Wall and Red Wall.

From the trail climb on the the ledge leading to the cliff left arete of Red Wall (left of Seamstress). Make your way into the crack system between the Red Wall arete and the Rising Sun Wall Cave Crack.

Follow this crack system to the top, passing two ledges.

This route hasn't seen a lot of traffic so be careful and sure footed. I did my best to clean of the most obvious choss but there is plenty of frail rock.

This route varies in climbing styles with some face climbing, chimney, crack, and lieback sections. One hundred and fifty feet of adventure :)

Basic Training tops out on the cliff between David's Castle and Fortress Wall.

Location 

Cliff right of Rising Sun Wall

Cliff left of Red Wall

Protection 

Eats up gear in all size ranges.

No fixed gear or bolted anchor.

Big boulder to sling or a small crack system from which to build an anchor.
