Routes in Left of Earwax

Everest Without Lycra S 5.11b/c 6c+ 23 VIII- 24 E4 6a

Description

The region from Earwax Wall (which ends at Friends in Holy Places) to all regions further left.
2017 Seasonal Raptor Closure: UTW from waterfall to Golden Arch Details

Getting There

Same approach as for the Upper Town Wall. Upon reaching Earwax Wall, just keep walking left.

An alternate approach is to turn off the UTW trail at Shady Lane, traverse the base of Shady Lane to the end, and meander up and right. It is a scenic way, but less traveled. The last part does not yet have an established trail and involves carefully skirting some bluffs -- so be careful if you choose this approach.

I've also been out there and wondered about those. Looks like plenty of fun stuff to be done. There are interesting looking mystery routes out past Shady Lane as well. Mar 29, 2017

There is a 50' tall by 100' wide black slab left of buttress with Sportfishing. Next west is a cool overhanging wall, 2 short routes with old slings. Mar 22, 2017

Sky Valley Rock lists ' Vanessa Del Rio 5.12c PG between Sportfishing and Everest. Maybe that is one of the lines you saw?

Looks like a fair amount of potential new routes over there. Mar 20, 2017

Jon, I came across 2 more routes 150' left of Sportfishing, short with ancient slings, overhanging about 40' long. Mar 19, 2017

Sportfishing looks great, particularly the top.

I've never heard of anyone doing it though. Next time I visit the area, and it's dry, I'd like to give it a shot. Jun 14, 2014
