  • Description 

    The Satellite Wall is more developed than the main wall and it is very small compared to it's bigger brother. The base area and clifftop are more manageable, thus descending routes/setting up TRs is possible without breaking too much of a sweat. A few of the classic routes are Dawson's Corner (5.7) and Gemini Dream (5.8).

    Many of the routes follow obvious crack systems and corners though there are a few face routes, and one spectacular unfinished project (has been TR'd, but awaits a redpoint ascent) called "Chainsaw Reaction" that tackles a razor-sharp overhanging arĂȘte. Care must be taken on the summit of this cliff to avoid additional erosion. Routes are described left to right.
