Description

The east face of Motherlode Rock is a fairly long wall with climbs all along it's length with the highest concentration of climbs on the left side. Climbs here tend to be on the shorter side but a few exceptions exist and most routes feature excellent rock and protection. Morning sun and afternoon shade.

Recommended routes here include Wildrose (5.6), Golden Nugget (5.10a), Lodestone (5.10b) and Out of Our Mines (5.10d).

* This area seems to be quite popular with groups of top-ropers, so be courteous as well as patient and enjoy the climbing.

Getting There

Easily reached from the vicinty of The Ampitheatre (Claim Jumper Wall, Gunsmoke Wall or Thunderbird Wall) by a network of trails or from the northern parking area by another series of trails.
