Description 

Also known as the Rollercoaster Wall, this crag has a large quantity of good quality lines. With a two minute approach this area can be very popular and very crowded. Rollercoaster themed, this area delivers a selection of good "rides". As holds true in most cases...the west side really does represent!!

Most of the climbs here are sport routes with the exception of Wild Country, Private Idaho, and Greg Lowe's Donini's Crack. Grades range from 5.9 to 5.12, with nearly all routes having separate, fixed anchors. A 60 meter rope will suffice as will a single set of gear and about 8 to 10 quickdraws.


Getting There 

Park at the large lot next to the bathrooms, cross the road and follow a trail on the right side of Bath Rock.

An outstanding route with multiple cruxes. The name Gemini possibly comes from the route's two characters- thin razor edges to big jugs and vice versa. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
