Description

The Cyclops Area is on the south facing wall left of the Winter Wall Area.

Getting There

Once you manage to find a parking spot, follow the stairs across the parking area up to the start of the trail. There is a trail map at the top of the stairs. Check it out, this will help you orient yourself. Follow the trail to the right known as the North Trail, stay to the right until you have to switch back left and up. This is the "crux" of the trail. Continue up the main trail until it T's at the base of the Winter Wall area. Follow the trail left for about 325 feet, until you see the main crack system. This the route known as "Forearm Smash". This area is commonly known as the Cyclops Area. Look for the big hole on the cliff wall (right of the crack), the climb directly on its line is called fittingly enough as "Cyclops".
