Description Suggest change

Several great crags lie just below the Upper Town Wall and Cheeks: Little Elvis, Shady Lane, Pressure Drop Wall, The Rabbit, and several others. Also, a few small outcrops lie along the approach trail. Most are relatively shady, but offer nice trad leads or easy-to-set-up topropes.

Getting There Suggest change

The trail to the Upper Wall starts at the NE end of the Country, just beyond the posted bulletin board, and winds up steep switchbacks to the upper wall. Little Elvis and Shady Lane are on turn-offs from this trail.
