Description Suggest change

The Main Face has the largest number of routes and the longest climbs at Mount Yonah, including some multi-pitch. Many of the routes were established by the Army for training purposes; though fun, there's a certain sameness about these, both in the climbing and the route names. However, there are some challenging routes on this wall as well, such as Stannard's Crack and Special Edition.

This is an excellent place to set up topropes for beginning climbers, as there is a whole section of 5.easy routes where the anchors can be reached simply by climbing with the help of a cable (to which you clip your daisy chain). These are also a great training ground for new trad leaders.

Getting There Suggest change

From the lower LZ, follow the trail signs for the Main Face. When you get to the cliff, you'll find cables strung to aid in making the 4th-class scramble to the cliffline trail.
