Description 

The Bubbs Creek wall is an astounding piece of backcountry granite that rises sharply from the Bubbs Creek Drainage. In late May the wall goes into the sun around 10:30 and is in the sun for the rest of the day.

Getting There 

Approach as per Charlotte Dome. Hike east from Road's End (where you get a camping permit) for 7.4 miles on a nice trail to a great camping spot just past Charlotte Creek. From here hike 20 minutes further down the trail until you can see the beautiful wall on the left.

Long, difficult, high quality climb in a stunning location. One of the best long free climbs for the grade in the State, or in the world, maybe. Pitch 1: Follow the dike up passing the first roof on the left after clipping a high bolt. Continue towards the flake, lay it back and traverse under the second roof.
