Description Suggest change

The main crag offering several leading options is The Alpenglow Wall. It is the primary wall you encounter after crossing the talus field and humping up the last steep section of the hill. The crag sweeps to the left with South to Westward exposure and is host to the best and longest sport climbs on the hill. Most routes run between 50 and 75 feet in length, are bolt protected, and come with lowering stations. The difficulty begins at 5.10 and runs to mid-5.12. As indicated in the comments to the Keystone area, the Chockstone Arete is an interesting contender for best route on the hill at 5.11a.

Getting There Suggest change

From the parking area head up the trail as if you were going to Haus Rock. Before you get to that talus feild, there will be a fork in the trail, take the right one. Hike uphill following cairns passing Main Hummingbird Boulder to another talus field. Hike up past the talus field for 100 yards or less. The trail will dump you out at the base of Pyramid Rock with one lone bolted line on it. Go around it to the right to finally reach The Alpenglow Wall.
