Description Suggest change

The Main Wall and the Black Beauty Wall form an "L", below which sits a large terraced area with 3 large boulders for shade. It's a beautiful area to hang out and watch the action as 18 climbs can be seen and easily accessed from the terrace.

The Main Wall is an impressively clean Tuolumne-like granite with cracks and hard face routes up to 130'. Routes run from 10a to 11d. There are new bolts and anchors on all the popular Main Wall routes, and all main wall routes can be TR'd. There is a rap anchor sitting atop Bat Cracks that can be easily walked to. Either 80m rap to ground or 60m to Bushy Ledge or rap to bushy ledge and second shorter rap station. Ascend and descend to top of Main Wall is via the gully trail right of Black Beauty Wall
