Description 

Despite the popularity of the nearby and sometimes crowded Rubicon this wall sees little action. Although fairly large it only has a handful of routes with For Peter (5.11c) being the best of the bunch.

Getting There 

From the Split Rock parking area follow a climber's trail southwest past the turnoff for Grand Canyon proper and take a left at the next wash to reach the formation which is located across from Rubicon.

Climb easy face to a horizontal dike. Follow the dike left using heel hooks and hand holds to a strenuous mantle. Continue up past two bolts on thin face to the top. I believe [the "R" rating] is justified because if you come off while doing the difficult mantle just under the 5th bolt (10 feet directly left of the 4th bolt) you will take a nasty pendulum and the rope may hit a sharp edge on a portion of the discontinuous dike....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
