The Upper Wall is covered with big holds with the occasional thin section between them. The wall is slightly overhanging and has a few roofs or bulges to surmount.

Beautiful area and really fun routes (for sport wankin'..hehe)! Much thanks to the EFR and Eric R. (& company?) for their development efforts. Good things happen when you combine multiple Eric's with some nice rock :)

On the way out yesterday (Sunday, Sept 12) I picked up a small, yellow Prana shirt and an aluminum water bottle with a Contact sticker. If these items belong to you let me know.

To the person who hacked away the scrub oak the base of the wall between Plateonic Love and Rayzors Edge:
If you are going to remove vegetation at the base of a climb please remove the minimal possible. In this case a little pruning would have been plenty. We left up the scrub oak when we put up the climbs, so removing just the new branches should have been plenty.
If you really decide that you need to take down the whole stalk, (which in this case was not necessary) then please use a saw and cut it flush with the ground.
Hacking down vegetation with an axe, and leaving pointy stumps and knocking over half chopped stalks is an embarrassment to beavers everywhere, is dangerous, and reflects poorly on all climbers. Please clean up your mess.
