Description

This is a great wall with 22 climbs from 5.8 to 5.11 with one 5.12-. I found this area to be a lot of fun with good rock. At first, it was a little scary to yard on the embedded rocks, but they seemed really solid.

Getting There

After crossing the creek head up and right. I was there in June and a large snow field made the approach a pain. Look for the Family Values buttress and head a little right.
