DescriptionThis wall, one of the taller at Deep Creek Narrows, is right at the creek. You will have to traverse in to the start of some routes on 5th class rock to avoid wading, especially in the spring.
Shady in the afternoon, this is a good choice for summer climbing when the valley below is scorching hot.
Getting ThereAs soon as you can see the crags below, start heading toward the left. You'll stay above the stream that enters from the left, and follow one of numerous steep trails that lead down to Deep Creek and the base of this crag.
Skirt the "main" formation of the area, keeping the highest rock right on your right side (you'll be downclimbing it, pretty much) and you'll find the most common route; a third-class scramble down a gully that dumps you out pretty much right at the base of the North Face. If you don't see it going down, you'll spot it on the way out.
