Description

Collection of HARD sport lines that are all super fun.
Ultra classic LAB is a must do at 5.12d.

This wall offers up a bounty of routes for the hard-body rock guide during the sweltering summers.

Many of the classics here have fixed chains instead of fixed quickdraws because of recent scares of fixed draws breaking across the way at The Cirque on Endless Wall. Not all the climbs here have the chains, so make sure you inspect the fixed draws before you trust them with your life.

As of 8/28/13 or earlier nearly every route besides the less traveled ones (burning cross, scar lover, against the grain) have brand new permadraws! Whip away!! Aug 29, 2013

For anyone looking for dry rock in the rain, this area stays dry during rain, however the rock tends to seep after a heavy rain. Even if it looks dry, many of the holds tend to be pretty clammy. Aug 2, 2009
