Description

This is beginner central at Vantage. On one side you can even sport the tailgate belay (well, almost). It tends to be a bit crowded due to the density of moderate routes. The Feathers are climbable on both north and south sides allowing for most weather conditions. Most of the sport .10s are on the south side, and most of the 5-7s are on the north side, since many of the pillars lean slightly south. 

Getting There

This formation is easily seen from the parking lot.
