Description

The Tombstone is a pretty vertical slab of rock high above Sky Valley. This east-facing wall doesn't get much attention due to it only housing three routes. Be prepared for loose, gravelly feet and suspect flakes if you venture too far left or right of the route lines.

The afternoon shade makes for pleasant summer climbing and the views are outstanding.

Getting There

Park at the pullout at milepost 18, same as for Boneyard And Ridgeline. Take the same trail for areas that follows a well traveled drainage to the saddle. Hike right as for the Boneyard but continue past until a path leading to the top of the formation becomes apparent. Once at the summit, drop down the north side and make your way east to the base of the wall. The hike time is somewhere around 25 minutes.
