Description Suggest change

Morning shade. Home to many easy and moderate routes. At least here the mud-ledge is less muddy and pronounced. The wall can be distinguished by the large chimney that makes up "Hello World" to the right and the far left dihedral that is capped by a small roof. This dihedral is considered part of Mossy Wall, which is around the left corner. Routes on the far left dihedral start in a corridor between the wall and a giant block (some start on top of the block)

Getting There Suggest change

10 minute hike on main trail. Follow the main trail across the creek and take the third right marked by a stone tablet labeled Middle Earth. Halfway up go right to Middle Earth Cave or go left to One Ring to Rules Them All. Alternatively, move left from Insanity Wall or right from Mossy Wall.
