Clint on Olympic Thrust, 11c.


This is one of several crags that in general are considered a part of the Outrageous Overhangs Area. Compared to surrounding cliffs the rock quality is a bit more broken up, dirty and non continuous, but provides a nice diversion when the more popular routes are busy.

Getting There 

Approach as for Olympic Wall which is just East of and contiguous with Opening Ceremony Wall.

If you continue East slightly up and through a tight spot in the trail up against the cliff and then back down this takes you over to Olympic Wall.
