BETA PHOTO: A view from Aphrodite to Half Hearted.
This is the large expanse of wall that includes the routes Aphrodite
thru Kathy's Corner
. This wonderful stretch of stone is the location of many hard trad routes and several difficult sporty climbs. The Upper Wall gets early morning sun and afternoon shade.
From the Air Conditioner corner the Upper Wall lies above and to the right. Access to the horizontal ledge system that traverses the base of the wall is easy and straightforward. This provides the best way to the base of 3 Pin and most of the routes from the left side to the middle of the wall. Access to the left side of the wall for Aphrodite
and Dunn's Dihedral is probably best accomplished by scrambling up from the AC corner.

: ... : The Upper Wall
Located on the right side of the first buttress about 80 - 100 feet right of Dunn's Dihedral. Approach from the base trail up through the aspen trees to the start, you can't miss it. This aesthetic line ascends the prominent double-overhanging, left-facing, corner system through four roofs of increasing difficulty. This is a hard route that continues to challenge with progressively harder moves all the way to top. The top of the route overhangs the start by a good amount.
