Baker on Tomahawk on Trail of Tears wall. Fantast...


Rather small wall with only three routes on it. The main feature of this wall is the long and exposed knife like arete which hosts 'Trail of Tears'. Another great climb is the super relentless 'Bare-Fisted Grizzly Killer'.

Getting There 

About a 15 min hike to get to this wall. Located just before the Purgatory wall.
