Halfway up, shot really puts it in perspective.

Description 

Some pretty fun slab climbing exists here, it is a bit east of Fern Point Cirque and most climbers don't make the trek, but it is well worth it.

The Upheaval if the absolute classic on this wall.

Getting There

Work up the chimney, corner feature till you can step left onto the face. Head up the left facing flake that arches to the left out onto the steep wall. Once the flake ends start a series of boulder problems on crimps and pockets up the steep orange wall with rests in between on horizontals. The crux comes with a really long reach going to the 9th bolt. Finish by pulling delicately onto the slab.Fun route with a good variety of holds, a fairly distinct crux though plenty of other difficult moves...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV

This is a great area for people looking for some easy sport on the Endless Wall. Fool Effect (5.9), The Upheaval (5.9), and Little Help From My Friends (5.10a) are all great moderate sport lines.
