Phenomenal position on the 2nd pitch makes this a must do for anyone wanting to practice their nutcraft skills.

Pitch 1: 5.8- Climb up funky rock around a Juniper and over a small roof then shallow cracks to a bolt and on up belay at a ledge by a juniper tree.

Pitch 2: 5.10a Climb up to a horizontal and rail left to a short chimney. Shimmy up and step up and left to a bolt. Follow amazing seams and edges that trend up and left keeping just off the edge of the void. Eventually the climbing backs off just before the (130ft) double bolt belay.

Rap down Wild Pitch with one 70m rope or two shorter ropes.


A good selection of really small cams and stoppers to finger size plus single run of cams to 4 inches.


Starts 40 ft down and right of Wild Pitch at a slanted grassy ledge above a gully.

That second pitch is fantastic.

You can protect this well with a set of double cams (small to C4 1 or 2) - I took a 3 and 4 and didn't use either. Agreed - second pitch is great!
