Closed March 15 through June 30 MORE INFO >>>


Finger crack, big edges, and pockets on solid basalt. Route is 30 or so feet to the right of where trail joins the "sunny side" wall. "Casual Slander", "Standing on Faith" (this route), and "Volcanic Therapy" form a loose, 3-sided box.

Access the anchor by walking to the right until an obvious way to the top is found. Slings are needed to extend the anchor point over the edge.


Top rope: Two-bolt anchor, slings needed for extension. No lead bolts.

Well I went down there and a 4 foot sling works about perfect to top rope these
