|Standard descent: downclimb NE Ridge (long). Alternate descent: head straight west from the summit (only 50' or so) to a ledge with a pine tree with slings. Do a short rap to the west from the tree, or downclimb south past a rotten looking pillar and then follow a ramp which diagonals down to the ground (5.2?). The rock looks a little suspect in this area but is actually quite solid. Head south to join the Porch Alley Trail.|

|Anyone know what this 20 ft highball or TR is behind/W of Front Porch, N of Red Devil with a few prominent cobbles on an clean, E-facing, gently-overhanging face? Felt hard, in the low 12 range (on a cold, snowy day)? Doesn't seem to be in this database.|

|The summit anchor (slings around a tree) were somewhat lacking today (May 18, 2008). Only two 1" slings with no rings or quicklink. Bring a new quicklink with you, and you can keep the leaver I left behind.|

|There were no slings or rings on the rap tree when as of today (4/11/10), but rapping off the tree at the top of Tiptoe was no problem.|

Leo: 1 oldschool 1/4" spinner on top (in a weird location for the face)? Did this a little over 5 years ago as a TR. The top 6-8' (the crux) was not cleaned yet.
Stellar and very sequency climbing. Seemed like an FA to me, so I named it Wonderwall.

|As of 13 Sep, 2011, there are two slings with rap rings on the tree near the summit. While the downclimb to the south of the tree is technically easy, be prepared for a little exposure while navigating the suspect rock.|

|There are still bears in the area, and as of today (4/26/14) it is a mother and two cubs. Be careful about the bears, but they seem to be well accustomed to people. I put some new webbing around the tree for the rap, since there wasn't anything there.|
