This is an awesome climb up the secluded Wiggins Wall. The hairy part is right before the small tree and ledge about halfway up, but it's well-protected.

To descend, scramble to the top and then downclimb the southwest side of the crag or rappel off the south bluff.


Go south past all the other walls. Go west on a path right before you pass a cave on your right and veer south to the cliff base. Scramble up a third class slab to a belay anchor and ledge.


9 bolts, two bolt anchor. Well-protected moves.

Ya got the old grade from the FA on here when it was still loose and evolving. 5.9 now, maybe 5.9+ at the crux if you're short.

You are undoubtedly right! I guess I can't claim to be climbing 5.10s anymore!
