Description

This is the area left and underneath Davis Holland, comprising a half dozen or so difficult and excellent face climbs. It's relatively low-angle by sport climbing standards and doesn't see much traffic. Routes that haven't been done in awhile (AKA, all of them) probably need a bit of brushing. Calling Wolfgang was pretty clean oh, around 4 or 5 years ago when I did it. Heart's Desire might see more traffic as it's right in the rappel line from the ledge below Lovin' Arms and sees some toprope action here and there. Other routes to the left are mired in the grunge and some of the rappel setups are in dire shape. I was able to rip an old piece of lead rope used as rap tat on one anchor in half with my hands a few years back.

The other important consideration on this wall is that some of the routes likely still have aluminum Kong-Bonatti hangers. On Calling Wolfgang, a friend of mine nearly died when bodyweight alone broke one of these corroded hangers. The next hanger ripped as well but the last one between him and a 60 foot ground fall held. Any of these should be viewed as dangerous because from the front, they can appear perfectly sound. However, the aluminum tends to corrode in a planar fashion and simply wafers apart when loaded.
