Description Suggest change

Down and left from Upper Walt's Rocks and facing southwest is this large cliffband which despite it's size has fewer routes than it's upper neighbor. That said, there are a number of quality lines to do here which more than make it worth visiting if in the area. Perfect Fingers (5.10a) and A Fine Line (5.12b) are the standouts but Cowboy Junkie (5.11c) is also worthy.

If coming from the vicinity of Upper Walt's Rocks the rugged terrain makes it easier to fix a line and rappel instead of scrambling down to the base.

Routes from left to right:

Purple Place (5.11b)
Step Function (5.11c R)
K2R (5.9)
A Fine Line (5.12b)
Perfect Fingers (5.10a)
Cowboy Junkie (5.11c)
