Description

Moderate face climbing on slightly less than vertical rock. The first routes ascend this wall on blocky jugs down low, which then leads to excellent crisp edges up high. Mainly sport routes that are long (80-100 ft). Numerous trees at the base allow for a shady belay spot, while all the climbs face south, southwest making it shady in the morning, while sunning in the afternoon.

Getting There

On the same approach towards the Red Wall and Starcastle, locate a cairn that breaks left or east into the talus field. Follow the cairns south (down the talus field) by boulder hopping to the next broken wall. Walk the base of the broken wall until it ends, and then break left. At this point you should see the Head Wall (the Headstone should be up and to your left). A large dead tree with its top sheered off will mark the first line on the wall--Classic Head.
