Description 

South-facing wall directly across from Gorgeous. One of the very best options on cool winter days. Also one of the first walls to bake during warmer weather.

Generally, Lower Elbow Room is home to high-quality moderate routes (including the outstanding "Slip 'n Slide," 5.9) and is a good destination for intermediate climbers.

Getting There 

From the base of Gorgeous, head very slightly down stream and cross the creek. Follow a climbers trail up the talus to the base of the wall.

P2: Five bolts, ~50 feet. Stem a slippery dihedral (5.10b).The route can be climbed as one long pitch.
