Description

The lowers was bolted by the Army for training and they painted numbers under the routes. The bolting is excessive to a climber and some of the routes can be climbed with mixed gear.It doesn't offer views like the Main Face, but it is better protected during windy winter days. It offers some decent climbs and is worth checking out. The routes are numbered left to right.

Getting There

Going up the main trail that leads to the summit, once you reach the large grass clearing about halfway up (helipad - note this is NOT the same as the army camp) there will be a trail with a worn wood sign to the right; follow it to The Lowers.

It's possible to reach The Lowers from the Main Wall but this requires following some rarely-trafficked climber trails and would be very difficult without compass & GPS. Best to just get back to the main trail and follow it down to the helipad.
