Description

This is a broad face with a number of fun routes from 5.8 to 5.12. The rock on this side is cleaner, with very little of the lichen present on the east face, but it's also a little rougher in texture.

Routes to do here include Trolling for Tuna (5.8), Crappie Corner (5.10a/b), Rapala (5.10c), Power Bait (5.10d) and Check Your Fly (5.12a).

The trail that passes below Crappie Corner is almost directly above the highway (and somewhat loose) so take extra caution and try not to dislodge any debris onto the road below.

Getting There

Circle around past the north face to reach this broad wall. Alternately, you can tunnel through the rock below Catfish Crack and come out by Trolling For Tuna.
