DescriptionA handful of moderately runout sport climbs ranging in difficulty from 5.7 to 5.10c. The entire wall is less-than-vertical, but much of the climbing is still quite interesting and a deviation from the majority of Castle Craggs trad climbing.
Getting ThereFrom the Vista Point parking lot, hike up the trail until after the turnoff for Indian Springs. Approximately 400 Aron's Paces (not really a unit) uphill from the Indian Springs turnout, turn uphill on a climber's trail at a clock-wise switchback. Continue up and left on the trail, over Newspaper Ledge then hug the wall on the right downhill from the 'ledge' and you'll find yourself at the belay area.
To get your bearings, the first bolted route you'll encounter is Mild Steel (5.10b). The guidebook might make you think that its a little further right than it is, so heads up.
