Description

Meat Counter has a lot of good moderates in a concentrated area. Popular routes range from 5.5 to 5.12, and are all high quality. Many routes are really short. A one rope rappel is always plenty. Routes are mostly bolted face climbs.

Getting There

Two approaches exist. The first one, which I recommend, hikes up the main trail from the Chopping Block entrance, skirting in between Wrinkled Rock on the right and Chopping Block on the left. Once past Chopping Block, take a left and look for a gigantic chockstone crammed between two larger formations. The formation on the right side of the chockstone is Meat Counter (the left side is Cleaver). Many routes are found by climbing up under the chockstone, and some others are on the back side by continuing further on the trail.

The second approach is not as fun, but may be quicker to Pigskin and Foreskin. Hike around Chopping Block's north side and take the gully upwards. Look for bolted lines.
