Description

One of the main walls at the Galaxy area, and the first big one you reach. This is where the first routes went up and holds some of the best rock.
The wall faces mostly West and gets lots of afternoon sun. During the Summer, the morning is perfect at this wall. The left most route goes into the sun at about 11:30 and if you work your way right along the wall you can stay in the shade until almost 3pm.
The wall on the left side has some terrific rock and classic routes (belay on the big landing below an easy slab). The tall section in the middle has some long lines and a second pitch or two (still being completed). The right side (the first you encounter on you right) has some short good lines and one long one.

Getting There

Past Mission Control. The first obvious big wall you reach. Has several "areas" but every section has its own good landings. (please help keep these landing and trails solid. If they need fixing, help out.)
