[Hide Comment] I have checked out this wall. There are several nice little lines here. I don't know who put up most of these routes. I believe Joe Herbst has done a line or two in this area but am uncertain which routes he did. Apr 15, 2009

[Hide Comment] This area is listed in Joanne Urioste's Red Book as "Slot Machine Wall" with climbs in the 5.8 to 5.10 range. Apr 15, 2009

[Hide Comment] A two bolt anchor has appeared mid-way on The Closet and is accesiable for the left finish of Pinball Crack, making this the easiest method of descent for these two climbs. Nov 14, 2012
