Description Suggest change

A fairly new addition to the Ruth Lake area, the chief wall offers a few moderate climbs on both gear and bolts. While the good medicine wall is bustling with folks, one can often find solace here.

Getting There Suggest change

One hundred yards after the "Haymakers and Hibernators" sign on the the main Ruth Lake Trail take the trail that forks off to the left.

After a couple minutes traveling on the flat rock with lots of small rocks marking the trail there will be another fork on the left. Take this trail straight up to the cliff.
