Description

This uncrowded wall gets good afternoon shade, and offers a great variety of routes from 5.9 slots to 5.13 crimpfests, including some of Shelf’s steepest (and shortest) routes on the free-standing Incredible Hulk boulder.

Getting There

Follow the trail from the old parking lot until a well-maintained spur trail signed “Far Side” heads left. Follow this trail to the far left end of the Far Side Wall.
