Description Suggest change

The most popular area on Mt Tammany, containing the two most accessible climbs on the cliff, The Rib, 5.3, and Triumvirate, 5.4.  There are many variations and linkups possible on the climbs on this wall, and many can easily be linked into long single pitches.  A standard Gunks rack is sufficient.  Many climbs end at (or can be ended at) a 2 bolt anchor on Triumvirate, just right of the obvious cedar 20' from the cliff top.  

Descents: A double rope rappel is required to rappel back to the ground/baseline trail from the top of this cliff. You can accomplish some of the routes, like 'The Rib', with a 70 meter rope and 1 pitch, but 2 ropes are needed for rappelling. If you gain access to the top of the cliff (lower  headwall), you can walk down the Class III slope and it eventually meets up with several old trails (grey & yellow), but they are no longer blazed and maintained. The were originally blazed by Hugh Dougher in the late 1970's and then reblazed by Joey Vulpis and Micky Levine in the early 2000's. Be cautious if hiking out from this section as it can be covered in scree.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike up the cliffside trail off of I80 for a 1/4 mile or so and look for a large boulder with a 12" tree atop it, this is the belay for the farthest right route "The Rib" 5.3
