Description

This two pitch southeast-facing wall is of quality granite and while it hosts only a few cracks, they are quite good.



Getting There

This wall lies a few canyons west of the Waterfall area. Park at the large dirt pullout located on the south-side of Hwy 88 just past the turnoff to Markleeville. Cross to the north-side of the street and look for a large boulder on the road side. Take the obvious switchbacks up to the base of a Bandit Crag. Continue up and right (northeast), making your way up a the most prominent canyon. Hike/scramble up the loose sand and rocks to the base of a large, east-facing wall approx 1/2 way from the top of the ridge (approx 40mins-1hr).
