Description Suggest change

Very shady wall just beyond Kitty Crag on the opposite side of the pass. Despite the name, there are a number of well-trafficked sport routes in the 5.11-5.12 range that are clean and enjoyable. There are some less trafficked routes and a couple of projects which are somewhat sandy and crumbly but would also clean up in time. This cliff is almost never crowded.

Getting There Suggest change

Approach as for The Black Corridor but take the trail to the right after the pools to head east along the Guardian Angel Pass. This is the first bolted wall on your right.
