Description [Edit]

Shade in the morning and sunny in the afternoon. This wall has some great exposure looking down at Boulder 1 and the road. Home to one of Stoney Point's best top rope face climbs.

Getting There [Edit]

Walk past B1 boulder towards the Pile Ups boulders. In between these two formations, cut up the hill slightly right of were you would head up for the Jesus Wall. Easy scrambling lead to the base of the wall.

To get to the top to set up the TR, head further towards the Pile Ups and ascend the hill behind them. Once up fairly high, but below the top (at the bottom of Spencer's), head left across a ledge and well worn grass path. There are three glue-in bolts for the anchor, hang the master point over the edge a few feet to avoid friction.

The last person will have to finish their climb then break down the anchor and head down. The remaining people can scramble back down the gully on the left (facing out).

The bolts are old rusty 1/4" drive-ins and are not intended for leading on, the are a vesitage from earlier days. This is a top-rope wall. May 13, 2007

Went to climb Pink Drips on May 31, 2009 and it looks like the anchor tree was a casualty of the fire last year. Plan accordingly. Jun 1, 2009
gri-gri'd this today. like above poster said, no tree, so had to use three cams and still didn't feel good about it. Feb 9, 2011

Looks like a great candidate for three beefy glue-ins.

I can contribute $40 to this effort. Oct 23, 2011
Pink drips has always been one of my favorite climbs at Stoney. I TR soloed it today and it seemed a more difficult than ever before. It seemed to me that there were about three places where there was fairly recent exfoliation near the top. I am not sure if holds were lost in the process, but I have never been unable to finish it before. I finally gave up and used a rope assist in the last 6 to 8 feet. I would be curious if anyone else thinks that this has gotten harder with use and abuse, as many climbs at Stoney often do because of the fragile holds and wearing down of the edges, especially on the steeper crimpy face climbs.

Maybe I am just getting older and haven't climbed enough recently. But not having enough strength is different from not having enough holds. Jan 7, 2018
