  • Description 

    This is a reorganizational entry to allow for L->R: sorting of the routes to make sense, we'll create an entry for the east face.

    This face has relatively few routes, and most are on the far south end of this face.

    The sun on this face is relatively quick to disappear in the late morning.

    Climbing on top of the Kissing Camels is not allowed.

    Getting There 

    Park at the North Main Parking Lot and walk up a designated trail to the desired route.

    Climbing Season
