Along the Cliff

Next section, right-to-left: Gelsa to Moe (closure)

Description

This section of cliff has a number of moderate multi-pitch routes. Many of them are left-facing corners that are more recognizeable to find once you've walked past them, then look back at them.

For most routes in this area, you'll want to top out and walk back along a climbers' trail -almost- all the way back to the road, then scramble down back when it's possible to the base of the cliff.

Gelsa is the massive right-facing hanging corner that's visible from the Deli. The corner does not reach the ground, but -- glance up. Yep, that's it! Or: look for a tree growing out and up from the base of the cliff at a pile of boulders below a blocky crack (see picture below).

If you're feeling adventurous and it's not crowded, consider the long traverse route of Easy Rider.

Getting There

From the trail in, this is the first set of routes you come to along the cliff. The very first thing you see is the massive Kansas City roof.
