DescriptionAround and right from Coyote Crag is this small, east-facing wall sitting above the trail from Coyote Crag to Motherlode Rock. It's location makes it very easy to walk past the wall without even realizing there are climbs to be done here. Due to the scrambling needed to reach the base this isn't the best place for young children or pets. Morning sun and afternoon shade.
Climbs here are on the shorter side, but fun nonethless with Wild Kingdom (5.10a), Down with the Herd (5.10d) and March of Dimes (5.11a) being among the best.
Most of the anchors on this wall are set back a bit from the edge, making rappelling off instead of lowering a good idea to spare your rope any undue abrasion.
Routes listed from left to right:
Branding Iron (5.10a)
Black Angus (5.10a)
March of Dimes (5.11a)
Wild Kingdom (5.10b)
Bovine Eyes (5.11a TR)
Down with the Herd (5.10d)
Getting ThereThere are two ways to reach this wall - scramble up a rocky gully just right of the climb Eight Second Ride or by scrambling up ledges near the right side of the wall which lies just around and left from Skyy Slab. The crag sits up high, making it very easy to walk under without even noticing it.
