Karen's first trad lead on the fun and easy left l...


This entire face is in the sun after 10:00 on most climbable days, and gets VERY hot in the summer. This is the most popular cliff at Q'emiln Park for moderate climbers.

Getting There 

This is the first obvious cliff on your right as you descend the trail nearest to the toll booth. It will be on your immediate right as you go down the stone stairway.

The grantite on this route is beautiful, the sequence is fun and it is well protected. This is definitely one of my favorite warm up routes on the Ledge Wall. Don't miss this climb! (This would also make a good first lead for a competant climber, all of the holds to clip off of are bomber.)...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID

Any info on the route straight up the middle of the main face with the rediculously crimpy crux on side pulls?
