Along the Cliff

Description

The second section of cliff from right to left, from the massive hanging Gelsa corner to the closure. 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. As Gelsa is a popular route, you'll likely find backpacks there as well.

Walking just past Gelsa, you arrive at a low, flat area of the trail sometimes called the "gym" for its collection of hard routes.

Most routes in this section have dedicated rappel anchors, though for some topping out and walking off is still fast and easy.

Towards the end of this section, a very recognizable visual anchor route is Up Yours - a right-leaning crack. The end of this section, is marked by the large, orange right-facing corner of Eenie Meenie. Moe is right next to Eenie Meenie.

Getting There

Trail along the base of the cliff. The trail drops down to a low point just where Gelsa's corner almost reaches the ground.
