Description

The lower of 3 tiers at Stonewall Peak. The rightmost tier as viewed from the approach. Hosts the area classic "Frito Bandito". Much of the rock here is crumbly and can cause headache when face climbing as well as serious rope drag due to being J-Tree grainy. Use of slings and back-cleaning gear can help with rope drag issue.

Getting There

Head up from the hiker's trail or down from the peak. Continue over the railing, in the direction the trail was going before it ended and scramble down from there.

Climbed here on 3 April 2014. As Tom mentioned, rock is very friable. Climbed the far left friction route which has only three very old bolts, and Forest Fire (5.8 per Hubbard and Kennedy's guide), an amazing climb. Rap station listed at 100 feet, but we made it easily on one rope with multiple feet to spare. Apr 5, 2014
