Description

Home of the classic Scream Cheese, The west face of Anteater will be a hard one to miss. It's striking featured face and amusement park style line to its base will make your arrival at the Anteater quite obvious.

Climbing here varies from face to crack to slab to everything in-between. A set of about 8-10 draws, a few long runners and a single set of gear should do the trick. Routes here aren't very tall and a 60 meter rope will just make it.

Lucky for most, there are more than two routes here, while waiting to be called, try your luck on Holding Out for a Hero or the highly aesthetic Smurf Smasher.

Descend: Reduce wear and tear by rappeling from anchors on top.

Morning shade / Afternoon sun.

Getting There

From Parking Lot Rock, take the fork that branches right, follow signs past Morning Glory and skirt along the trail to the base.
