Description

Steep, shaded, limestone wall with a variety of bolted routes. The wall faces east and is shaded by numerous trees along the base.

A good crag for hot summer afternoons and evenings, the routes lie along two or three hundred yards of the east face of a limestone fin that reaches down to the streambed.

Getting There

Proceed up the canyon to the first stream crossing (a small wooden bridge). Instead of crossing the bridge stay right along the edge of the stream bed. Continue past the gully on the right (approx. 100 feet from the crossing) and along the base of the wall at the right (south) of the stream bed . When the wall turns a corner and heads south you are at the north side of The Adjective.

This area is seeing a lot of work and has quite a few new routes that all seem to be stellar. Watch for falling rock...I was up here when Andy was bolting and cleaning some of these and there was some serious rock coming down. Highly recommend this area. Aug 13, 2008
There are a lot of new routes being bolted & cleaned on this wall right now. A few are projects but many have FA with ratings, but are not included yet. And yeah, some seriously large stuff has been cleaned off this wall. Definitely will be some classic lines when finished! Aug 30, 2008
