Description

The Cove Wall is the long wall on the east side of the gully. This is a classic bulge wall, with tricky starts to dynamic movement over the apex. At the steepest part of the wall there is a Giant Hollow Flake on the apex of the bulge. From below it is obvious to see where the bounderies of this thing lay, though it feels and looks solid. Tap it with a hammer though and it's weakness is revealed. I left the jug rail that makes up the top of this flake dirty, and did not do any problems directly over this feature. I make mention of it for safety reasons and for further descriptions.

Despite that, this wall delivers a fine selection of problems on great rock. And all of them are deceptively difficult.

Getting There

Hike up the east side of the gully and work right.

Climbed a fun line today between Little Fin and Hollow Flake. Balancey moves to a long reach to heinous undercling that i could only seem to get purchase on using my thumbs. Finished on hollow flake. Fun little thing to do if you're there. May 9, 2014
