Description

This has been the most popular wall on Steamboat so far. It offers several excellent two-pitch sport routes from 5.7 to 5.10a on generally excellent dolomite slab. The wall is bisected at about 45' by a large ledge which makes an end for the first pitch options. Above the ledge are 4 different bolted second pitches. This makes for a great instructional venue, but do be careful of loose rocks on the ledges!

Getting There

This is the tall (120') gray slab right of center on the cliffband. Leave the trail after it's leveled out and hike up the short steep hill to the base.

So i was up late last fall and remembered seeing a trad line under the roof with some anchors, just left of the moderate wall. It is right behind the pine tree in the picture with red route lines. It looked short and sweet and was just wondering if anyone knew the story on it. Thanks for any help Apr 13, 2010
