Description [Suggest Change]

Pellaea is found on the Nebel Horn behind the Goose eggs. The rock is best known for its East Face route (5.5) which is 470 feet long. This is one of Roach's Top Ten classic flatiron routes.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Fern Canyon Trail is the best approach for Pellaea. This trail begins from the Mesa Trail, 200 yards south of the junction of the Mesa Tail and the Bear Canyon Trail. The trail passes within ten feet of the bottom of the rock. Pellaea is right after the trail passes a large boulder with a 5.12 sport climb on its east side.

I was optimistic and wanted to save weight by bringing a 30m rope on this climb for the rap off. It turns out this does work, just be sure to knot the ends and land on a chockstone in the chimney or you can easily chimney just above the ground. Jan 28, 2013
