Description

A west-side area of 17 routes at the southern end of the Inner Gorge, DMZ is among the cliffs with the fewest stars/route avg. in the ORG.
Good place to warm-up for harder material nearby -- hence the name? Faces SE -- so esp. suitable on cold mornings.

Getting There

People in general don't go to the Gorge to climb slabs, but this cliff has some nice routes on it. Good slab practice because the bolts here are sure as hell closer together than most slab routes in the Meadows. Oct 13, 2017
This cliff is characterized by 5.10 slabs. It also has a couple of worthwhile easier trad pitches. Dec 28, 2006
