K Wall (aka M Face) Rock Climbing
David Eckels climbing in the calm before the storm...
There is lots of loose rock above the right side of this face. To its left is the L Face. The climbing here

Start in a wide, right-leaning crack, with a small seam that leads up to the left. Climb past a left-angling crack (The Power of Positive Thinking, 10) to a small pod on the right side of the crack about 1/2 way up.
