Candy Corner is the large corner to the right of t...


A fun corner. Protects well with a couple steep sections. Great for trad beginners.


Start at the base of a tall right facing, left slanting corner system 25' right of Ye Gods. Assend the corner to reach anchors on the Drop Zone ledge.

Descent: Rap from anchors with a 60m rope.


Standard rack, some old fixed pro, mostly smaller stuff.

A really ideal place to introduce someone to trad. Plenty of places to put gear so the 2nd can practice cleaning. Helmets are very necessary as there always seems to be rockfall if there are parties above on other routes (ie Skyline Traverse).

Used this route to help several first timers break into leading. Beware, when you belay, stand down and right from the route. Rock fall at the base of this route is very common.

This is an interesting route that has a very defined crux. It has lots of rockfall from Skyline Traverse but makes for a good intermediate route.

This is kind of a miserable lead, at least more than most, when it's cold and wet - ice likes to accumulate behind the flake.
