Along the Cliff

last area: Frog's Head & The Arch | next area: The Mac Wall

Description

Major Features: The major attractions for this area are the classic-moderate namesake routes: Strictly From Nowhere and Shockley's Ceiling. There are, however, several other truly worthwhile routes in the surrounding area.

The left boundary of this area is the sharp, hanging arete of Ribs, which is just downhill from the Arch. At the right end, the huge corner system of Three Pines marks the boundary for the next section, e. The Mac Wall (Something Interesting).

Approach: The
Strictly's approach trail. A few feet north of the East Trapps Connector Trail (Stairmaster). is easily identified at the carriage road by its intersection with the East Trapps Connector trail -- the Stairmaster, as it's lovingly called, that comes up to the carriage road from the Visitor Center parking lot. This trail brings you right to the base of Strictly From Nowhere, and Shockley's Ceiling is just around the arete to the right.

Descents: There are bolted rappel lines over Ribs and over Strictly From Nowhere. One rope will do.
