BETA PHOTO: the Knob Wall
Knob Wall gets its name from the preponderance of large brown knobs protruding from the granite. There are two easy climbs on the right side that follow these lines of knobs, perfect for the beginning climber but also fun solos for anyone wanting a warm-up before tackling the walls more challenging lines. These harder climbs are on steeper terrain and tiny crimps but mostly finish on easy knobs. There is a bolted anchor for the two easy lines and another that serves the four harder lines. Descent is via an easy walk-off to the northeast.
Same as that for Main Wall Left. From there, continue to the southwest, picking up a faint trail that heads west over the ridge, down along the north side of Knob Wall.
