Needs to be noted that this wall is typically very wet. The routes tend to have a lot of dirt and debris. Bring a brush if you're leading anything.

There's a small oak tree (and two dead trees) at the top of Day of Madness and Rasputin, no rappel anchor/rings. The walkoff is behind this tree and climbers left, easy scramble. You can use a larger tree at the top for Figaro, the tree on the right closer to the edge is perhaps too far right to be of use. The large tree at the top is directly above the route and there isn't any rope drag using it, even slinging low. Jul 31, 2016
