BETA PHOTO: The parking lot area including Ursus Horribilis


First pitch commonly top roped for training. Best to do early or late as wall gets hot in summer.

All pitches have bolt and chain anchors plus listed bolts

First pitch - 5.8, 4 bolts
First bolt quick simple scramble. Second requires a bit of commitment towards the end as the face gets a little thin.

Second pitch - 5.7, 5 bolts (loose flakes)
Third pitch - 5.9, 3 bolts
Fourth pitch - 5.7R, 1 bolt and pro to 2" (short)


Drive your car to the wall and look up! Belay off bumper and start climbing. First and second pitch can be linked, (60 meter rope) can use two rope rap from second pitch.


Good quality bolts, Pitches have anchors with chains
