Description

Steep slab wall downstream of main wall. Sunny most of the day except early morning. Rock is of good quality. This area sees little traffic. All routes single pitch, but double rope rap needed on longer routes.

Getting There

Same approach as Main Face. Continue following trail until it ends just past the Diagonal. Then bushwack another 100 yards or so looking uphill for the big slab

Walk past the end of the main wall through a thicket of giant prehistoric looking prickers and across a wet spot. Keep going until the trail starts trending down hill and look for a short weakness (with a small tree) in the rock on your left to scramble up about 8 ft onto a ramp moving back up and left (you'll cliff out if you go too far). Move up and left on the ramp for a bit until you can just move up. Head back right and you will come to the cliff.

It's the Slab Wall but don't expect to find much pure friction climbing. Quality rock but a little dusty from lack of traffic Sep 10, 2023
