Description

The Lower East Side is a small seldom visited wall, below and north of the east face of The Chicken/Hyperion Slab. This wall is about 50 feet high and faces the northeast and is easily seen below and to the north (right) of the approach trail as one nears The Chicken. The wall is steep, but less than vertical and features numerous cobbles and inclusions, but lacks the abundant pockets found elsewhere at Texas Canyon. The wall contains two bolted routes that were formerly TRs.

Getting There

After descending the trail and nearing the east face of The Chicken (Hyperion Slab) look down to the right for this short wall. Continue hiking downward, to the north, as you skirt the right side of The Chicken, look up and left to see the wall.

Thanks, Ben. There are additional sport routes on a face to the right of, and up the hill from, Lower East Side. One route on the face has 6 bolts and tops out below a large, bulging overhand. I believe there are other routes on that face as well. In the picture at mountainproject.com/v/10717…, its the wall around the arete from Lower East Side below the "nose" to the right of Hyperiod.
