Getting ThereDrive to the Bear Lake parking lot, follow signs to Emerald Lake (about 1 and 1/2 miles), and scramble up to the cliff. Most of the climbs are on the second of three buttresses which make up the face.
DescriptionThis is a somber, 1000 foot, north-facing wall which looks the part of a classic, craggy alpine face. It feels like it, too. The Culp-Bossier is probably the best route. The standard classic, the Northcutt-Carter (formerly 5.7) has been partially erased by rockfall and is now reportedly much harder.
Descent: from any route, the easiest descent requires hiking up the talus on top of the wall (but well shy of the hidden summit) until one reaches a steep, loose gully which bears NW. Head down it, bearing up and to your left 2/3 of the way down to avoid getting cliffed. Then walk back to the base of your route. It is potentially a very dangerous descent if others are in the gully.
Within this subarea, you will find only the rock routes.
