Along the Clifflast area: Yellow Wall and the Seasons | next area: Sleepy Hollow
DescriptionMajor Features: The moniker of Slime Wall is really only apt in the early spring. As it is densest in harder routes, you're fairly likely to find solitude (+/- carriage-road traffic) this far down the cliff.
This section starts with Last Frontier's bombay-chimney-hand crack, which hangs over the cliff-side trail (don't let it eat you). It continues as more or less a continuous wall all the way to the slabby crack of WASP. I've included the Dance routes (Sundance, Moondance et al.); in this section because the most straightforward way to reach them is hugging the cliffline north of WASP.
Approach: There are several trails that head up to the cliff in this area. It's easiest to aim at the , which deposits you at the base of the easily-identifiable crack of WASP, and work leftwards from there.
Descent: Simple Suff, Comedy In Three Acts and Frustration Syndrome sport bolts at the top of first pitches; the latter can be used for The Stand.
