Description 

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.

This climb starts at the base of the arete for Great Controversy. Climb up and left following the sloping ramp. Climbing isn't too hard but it does feel a little awkward. Mantle the famous ledge and then thin climbing leads to anchors....[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?
