Getting weather forecast...


North Facing Wall. Shaded in the early morning. Bottom half probably remains somewhat shaded throughout the day, but not sure. Several (4) TR anchors on top so this wall will probably see crowds on the weekend. Climbs range from 5.5 - 5.10+ depending on the variations. It is about 45-50' tall and is a great wall to work on footwork and spotting holds.

Check the bolts before blindly trusting them. The farthest east bolt seems to move in its hole a little. The back bolt on the three bolt anchor at the far west down on the shelf has somewhat loose nuts, so make sure they are tight. Be sure to use more than 1 bolt and equalize them.

When the wall is busy, ask before clipping to a bolt someone else is already using. I am fairly sure as many as four ropes can be run on this wall, but that will make it fairly busy.

Getting There

North Facing wall just west of Beethoven's wall. Follow the trail around and from Beethoven, hugging the cliffside, and it's just up on the left. There is a tree right next to part of the wall and the start of Amadeus. The Center Climb has the word COBRA spray painted at the base.

Walk up to the top from the west gully.

Climbed Mozarts 10/6/15 and found routes tuffer generally than graded. Perhaps holds have broken?? Note the tree at wall has fallen down. Also note far right anchors have several bolts without hangars. Great spot with some shade in back of alcove. Oct 6, 2015

Key hold on Amadeus or Amadeus II broke today (I can't tell the two apart). As of now, only thin moves near the top, without the nice jug for assistance. The jug has been there for a while and always felt weak; saw it break as a foothold.

Still a great climb and the difficultly probably only bumped up to 10b or so Jun 7, 2015
Climbed 4/15/15. Good quality rock, excellent wall for anyone who's climbed in any capacity before. The arĂȘte on the right side is a good beginner route as it doesn't require many hand hokds other than for balance.
In my opinion the routes are probably a little underrated. Most likely the result of some holds falling off throughout time. The 5.9 is really fun.. And the 5.7 left route? Maybe it exists but I didn't see many obvious 5.7 features.
The anchors are all pretty bomber, though I would say always check them anyways and use atleast 2. Apr 17, 2015
Be very wary of the two new looking bolts with fixe hangers above the right side of Mozart's. Although they appear to be only a few years old, both hangers spin freely and one of the actual bolts can be wiggled around by hand both vertically and horizontally. Can't tell from the outside what the issue is, but whoever put them in definitely f***ed up.

The two big glue-ins are bomber. Feb 25, 2013

GUIDES: The low angle buttress on the right side is an excellent 5.0 TR for young children, heavyweights and athletically challenged people. There are 3 solid bolts at the top to protect it.

INTERMEDIATE BOULDERING: Traverse Mozart's from left to right for a nice pump. If the guns are shot but the mind is sharp traverse from right to left to get the hard stuff out of the way early. May 18, 2007
