DescriptionThe East Main Bluff consists of all the lines from the Hero Maker Wall, by the road, to the Chickenhead Wall, down by the Throne, where the bluff line takes a sharp turn to become the West Main Bluff.
This area faces roughly east, so it has some pretty good climbing in cooler weather, especially fall, but all seasons are good. The rock is the same great sandstone that is found all over this area.
The order of the areas from left to right as seen from the bottom of the climbs is:
Dead Dog Wall
Fraggle Rock Wall
Too Big to Finger Wall
Reader's Digest Wall
Hero Maker Wall
Getting ThereFrom the parking lot, hike down the road to the left, ending in a a circle drive. From there, head down a trail towards the east, ending on top of the Chickenhead Wall.
From here, either rap the descent near The Wasp on the West Main Bluff or continue along the top of the East Main Bluff to the Catacomb Walkdown, which involves some downclimbing in a chimney.
