Description

One of the steepest walls on Dickey with a cool mix of climbing. Cracks, corners, and face climbing are all found here. Including a prominent chimney/off width splitting the wall. A single rack should get you through most of the routes here, bolts are present but these are not sport routes.

Getting There

Hike up until just past the overlook and head right into the woods to rap down the wall. Or Hike up past the 5.4 Corners and Central Tongue following a climbers trail to the base.
