Description

This crag has solid rock, with both trad and sport routes. It stays in the shade till 2 pm in the summer, which makes it a really great option for those looking to not only get in a great hike, but find nice rock climbing temperatures.

Getting There

Follow Mt Washington Trail past Amazonia and the Bob's Area turnoff to a climber's trail branching off left after a "stump". Photo of the stump and trail are in the guidebook.

Is that 'pumper' or 'pumpier'?
Old guys like me need help here keeping up with the new terms... Jul 5, 2015
After climbing most of the routes in Bob's Area, I have to say that this wall is my favorite! The routes are a bit longer and "Pumpier", the texture perfect, and the views of Mt. Si and Mt. Washington are nice...but more than that, on hot summer days this place stays in the shade till almost 2pm. Get an early start, and enjoy zero crowds and some excellent rock climbs. From the 10a on the left (which is excellent) I was able to rather easily set up a TR on Leeland's mega classic 11d to the right. Didn't do the crack climbs yet but they also look quite good. For those with the will to hike, this wall is the cat's meow. Jul 4, 2015
