Description

Perhaps the best side of this crag, this offers some longer (for the the area) routes as well as a good selection of climbs in the 5.10-5.11a range.

The wall is comprised of two sections with a "break" in the middle, which is just a shorter, less inspiring section of wall. The routes on the left portion of the wall rise from a rocky gully, while the routes on the right side start from fairly level ground.

Some recommended routes here include Panning for Gold (5.10b), Mighty Quinn (5.10c) and Stake Your Claim (5.10c).

Routes listed from left to right:

Highgrader (5.11a)
Stake Your Claim (5.10c)
Mighty Quinn (5.10c)
Long Arm of The Law (5.11a)
Good Day for a Hangin' (5.10b)
Funkadelia (5.9)
Reach for the Sky (5.10b)
Whiskeroo (5.10c)
Panning for Gold (5.10b)
Golden Showers (5.9)

Getting There

Easily approached from the northern parking area by following a well-defined trail system that passes beneath the Incinerator Wall and cutting right up a steep, rocky gully that lies beneath the left side of the west face. Plan on 1-5 minutes for the approach depending upon where you park and how far up the gully your chosen route resides.
