Description [Suggest Change]

This area extends from the Dog Walkdown on the left (seen from the base) to the corner where the East and West Bluffs meet, near the Chickenhead Wall.

Since it faces west, this area is good for summer mornings and afternoons during the cooler times of year. The rock is great, with maybe a little more lichen than that on the East Main Bluff.

The order of the areas from the Dog Walkdown to the intersection with the East Main Bluff is:
The Squeeze Block
Titanic Wall
Quarter Dome
Arachnophobia Wall
The Dark Side Wall
International Walls
Coup D'etat Wall

Getting There [Suggest Change]

The most popular access is via the Dog Walkdown. This is found by using a trail heading downhill about 1/3 of the way between the entrance to the parking lot and the circle drive. Take a left at the bottom.

Another way to access the cliff is by rapping the descent line between the Chickenhead Wall and the Wasp.

The West Main Bluff is the bluff line between these two access points.

We walked the entire west bluff and its covered in moss and spider webs. Needs some serious traffic or cleaning in my opinion. Oct 1, 2016
