Description

This pocketed wall gets morning and early afternoon sun and some shade late in the day. Standouts here are Pick Pocket (5.11a) and the "Sex" routes. Some routes in the center start off of a ledge which requires an easy 5th class scramble.

Getting There

From the upper approach, hike south down the gorge, past the trestle, around the corner, over the log and the bridge, through the nettle swamp and take the left trail up towards the insanely chalked wall.

It's called Uncle Reach .11d put up by Dr. Mark Robinson. I hear it's probably 12a if you're short. I think the chain and multiple bolts has to do with rock quality (separating the bolts a bit more than usual) but I haven't been up there so that's just a guess. There's some good link ups on that wall though. Starting on Uncle Reach and angling across Please Baby to finish on Pick Pocket is 11a and starting on Pick Pocket finishing on Please Baby is 12a. Both are fun. The pocket jugs on the middle portion of Please Baby are awesome. Mar 6, 2014
What's the deal with the route right of Please Baby Baby??? All that chain at the anchor? Mar 6, 2014
