Description 

Region left of the Lower Town Wall, past the trail to the Inner Walls. Near to, and facing, the road and tracks.

The area has tons of potential, with varied terrain from slab to roof. The area already has a fair number of moderate routes, and the approach is as short as that for the Lower Town Wall.

Getting There 

You can park at the next turnout past the LTW main parking lot (i.e., further west), or walk west down the tracks from the LTW. Less than 10-min approach either way.

Racer X 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  WA : Index : ... : Behind and left of the Wart
This is a great slab climb with your typical index knobs. P1, Climb a dirty ramp(5.7) to a bolted belay, or better yet take the first pitch of beetle bailey arch, much better and cleaner (10c). P2, Traverse way left, then up the knobby slab, some people put a 3" cam in a hole low down (10a). P3 I dont know if anyone does this, but it is a short pitch up an arch (9+)....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA

CONDITION REPORT 
The organization of areas attached to the Lower Lump Area is counterintuitive and makes it difficult to browse the routes. Given how few routes are here, I see no reason to divide it up at all.

The reason for the division of areas is to easily accommodate the routes that will be added. The Lower Lump has a lot more routes listed in the Sky Valley guidebook, with only a few of them here.

I had thought that the routes would get added a little more quickly. But eventually, MP should catch up to and surpass the number of LL routes in the Sky Valley guide. (And it is a bit of a hassle to divide up an area after it has a lot of routes.)


The division is roughly the same as that in the guidebook. What makes the present division counterintuitive?
