This is the north-facing wall 100 yards north of the Shenandoah Wall. It can get pretty windy, but usually offers some shelter from gusty days and heat. The rock is less grating than the typical NDC dacite, so you can get more pumped than raw from a day of climbing.

The routes were bolted, for the most part, ground-up. This was not done in an attempt to thump on my chest or to prove anything to anyone. I bolt routes as it pleases me, for my own climbing enjoyment. If you are going to criticize my efforts, at least have the courtesy to do so after visiting the crag and climbing the lines. IMHO, the climbing community doesn't need any more safety monitors to dumb it down and defeat natural selection.

Getting There 

From the east gate of the power station, past the wind sock, follow the old road north, around a curve and out onto a plateau with high-tension cable towers. Hike directly east from the towers, trending slightly south, to drop into the base of the wall from the wash to the north. First bolted line on the right is "The Binky Crisis"
