Description Suggest change

A beautiful crag above the Petrifying Wall. It feels a little more remote as the highway noise is almost completely damped out and is in a pretty forest. It has a pretty even mix of trad and sport.

Some highlights include "Wicker Cranium" (5.9 trad) "A Little Testis" (5.10b trad) and "Totally Clips" (5.10b sport).

Getting There Suggest change

From the Petrifying Wall, take the gully up and right of the "Flight of the Challenger" area. Follow the fairly distinct but unmarked trail. Maybe ten minutes past the Pet Wall.
