DescriptionFun and easy with a rope, scary as all hell without. Don't fall. Vultures circle the top of this wall in hopes some pad carrying pebble puller makes a bad, bad, very bad move.
-Remember, if you fall, you will likely die. If you don't die, you will likely wish you would've since;
A: you probably don't have cell service (and wouldn't have use of your arms to reach it anyway)
B: there isn't that great of a chance that someone will just "happen by"
C: Your spotter probably won't know how to care for your level of extreme injury unless of course you happen to be climbing buddys with a paramedic, ER doctor, or combat medic...
D: It honestly takes 45 minutes once in an ambulance to reach a hospital from GHSP.... and that's after the "hike" out of the Highlands area
E: you can't use the ponies to strap people onto to use as a stretcher, no matter how fun it may be.
-the bottom line is, if you're going to highball/solo this... be freaking careful.
Getting ThereTake the trail from the road toward the gate. Go through the gate and up the tall hill. At the top of the hill, stand in awe of the big pretty boulders and continue to the signpost. Pet ponies. Turn right and walk toward stone. At the huge face with a bag deck landing, stop, because youre here.
