Description

Tallest and most austere of the walls at this crag. Several of the most continuous and sustained sport routes are found here.

From Climber's right:
Blockbuster
Afterburner
Windburn
Project
Big Howie
Pinch to Grow and Inch
Let The Daylight In
Speed of Sound

Getting There

Continue down river (climber's left) of the Bat Cave about 100 meters until you come to a tall (25 meter) section of steep white and black basalt. This is the afterburner. The clif faces due East, with great morning sun for winter/cold day cragging and goes into the shade in summer afternoons. Excellent rock, classic lines, quality hardware and anchor chains.
