Description

Deception wall lies just South of the Iron Horse trail. It is the tallest wall at the Deception area, ~200-300ft, and sports on of the few "multipitch" routes at E38.

Also, I was surprised this area was not already added. I'm by no means an expert since I climb here infrequently. So, please PM me or leave comments if you have errors or additions.

Getting There

To get to Deception follow the trail from the parking lot up to Iron Horse trail. Turn East. After crossing the bridge, it is the first large wall to your right. It is after the turn off to Nevermind trail and before you get to We Did Rock. Climbs on the right side of Deception are accessed from a short side trail leading to a ledge. Those in the middle of wall are accessed from the side or under a long concrete bridge with a fenced railing.

Sorted routes correctly, and removed the Goat route, changed to Old Milwaukee Road as indicated by the FA. Nov 4, 2014
Can we get an admin in here or the page owners to clean this up a little?

1. Just Dessert + Side Dish description is of La Vida Locomotive. Can we change it?
2. Just Dessert is a separate route (left-most up to Bandit Ledge, awkward face climbing on rusty bolts, 10b)
3. Side Dish is a separate route (off Bandit Ledge, pass an initial overhang than climb a cool right facing corner, 5.9+)
4. Late for Dinner is the first route on the left off Bandit Ledge so it should be placed first in L->R order in the side panel.
5. Seems like Black Market is the same thing as Just Dessert so can we delete that page?
6. May be nice to split Der and Ailed into two routes as well, just for clarity and considering that for beginner climbers it may be nice to see that there is a 5.7 well bolted route there they can play on.

This is just based off Rustin's comments and a day at the crag. Oct 18, 2015

Thanks Pawel. I took care of some of these issues. The issue with Black Market seemed unclear.

I agree, it would be better to add Der as a separate route.

Can you add that and 'Side Dish'? Oct 18, 2015
