Description

South-facing cliff with routes from 5.7 to 5.11c. Less steep than the Lower-Town Wall and more featured, with most routes involving both crack- and face-climbing techniques. It's a nice place to hang out (the base is flat and open) and do moderate routes. An added plus is that the approach is relatively short.

Getting There

Take the trail west from the Lower Town Wall towards the Inner Town Walls. When you are almost on top of the little stream, look for the wall to the North (your right). One short trail goes to the right side of the cliff (through some small boulders), another trail further up goes to the left end of the cliff.

Regarding the description above: in the past, this crag was neglected and usually dirty - mainly due to tree branches that came too close to the wall. Recently, this crag received some much needed care - many of the routes have been recleaned and some of the branches, etc that kept this crag shady and grimey have been removed. It feels like a new, much better place. Aug 21, 2011

The new trail to this cliff is really nice. A work party in 2012 fixed up the section between Knob Job and K-Cliff, where the trail used to be a root grab. Apr 28, 2013
