Upper Burner Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Ol' Stasis and Hopscotch waiting for action.
This wall has a selection of good crack routes. Not a lot of attention is paid to this wall, although some excellent climbing exists.
The wall is located immediately northeast of the Burner Buttress. Make your way to the Bongeater Buttress, go around the East side of it and some manky trails lead up to the Burner Buttress.
