Description Suggest change

The sheer, dark brown Dos Equis is one of the more spectacular-looking walls in Indian Cove, and sports a handful of relatively long, moderate/difficult routes with some nice exposure.

The South Buttress (5.7) is a nice climb along the edge of the face, and some nice-looking climbs on the face itself include Flare Play (5.10b), Scare Way (5.10b), Skid Row (aka Air Play) (5.10d), The Highwayman (5.11b) and Tecate (5.12b).

Corona Wall is a smaller wall located further up the gully from Dos Equis, which offers slightly easier and shorter climbs.

Getting There Suggest change

Dos Equis and Corona are located on the southwest face of the second to last major formation as you head out towards the west end of family camp area in Indian Cove (if you get to Moosedog Tower, you've gone too far). 

Approach to the South Buttress is direct and very close to the road; the rest of the climbs are located up the gully to the left of the formation.
